It's Show Time!
at Goat Shows

Good advice for ALL livestock species!
Shows are an especially risky activity from a biosecurity perspective, as many animals of unknown history and from far reaching locations are in close proximity. If your goat is exposed to disease while at a show, even if they appear healthy when they get home, they can spread the disease to the rest of the herd, creating an outbreak of a disease that may be hard to get rid of. 

Luckily, you don't need to avoid shows, just implement some simple biosecurity measures to make sure your goats come home as healthy as they left.  See the entire article written for goat owners (but applicable to all species) at
Host Families Needed!
States' 4-H International Exchange is in need of host families for the academic year program and the summer program (July 23 – August 17). Please consider this opportunity to open your home and share your world with an overseas student! 
States’ 4-H has offered short term and long term hosting programs for over 40 years. Host families come in all shapes and sizes and reflect the diversity of the United States. What they have in common is their eagerness to open their homes and hearts to a young person from another culture.

Hosting provides our host families the opportunity to:
- Experience a different culture
- Represent the United States to other countries
- Learn culture and customs from international youth
- Develop intercultural competencies and cross cultural communication skills
- Give an international youth an unforgettable experience
- Build lifelong international friendships
Ready to host? Take the next step!
