A new policy allows the off label rabies vaccine to be administered to goats showing at the fair, and a double barrier fencing with a “do not touch” sign will NOT have to be required!! A brief write up about the new policy: Goats Policy

For the fair goats are required to have:
Goat Clinics will be held throughout the year to help youth working with goats learn about raising and managing the care and development of their animals.
The Dowes will be giving away another goat kid to a 4-H'er interested in starting a herd and participating in the 4-H goat show. Interested candidates must have parental permission, and must have appropriate housing and care for the goat.
