Nominations to 2011 test

Nomination packets for the 2011 Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test will be mailed to previous consigners.  The packets will be sent out in mid-March.  The nomination period opens on April 1 and ends on May 15. There is a $20 nomination fee per goat.

Up to 80 goats will be accepted for the 2011 test.  All nominations received during the nomination period will be treated the same.  If more than 80 goats are nominated, preference will be given to previous consigners and Maryland residents.

If you are not a previous consigner, but would like to receive a nomination package, please request a packet from Pam Thomas at (301) 432-2767 x314 or pthomas@umd.edu.
