|Laine Crandall showed how to milk a goat|
Last year around this time, I posted an article about a goat show I attended at the Southern Vermont Dairy Goat Association, located in Marlboro, Vermont (click here). It was a great show and a good time.
The SVDGA celebrates Goat Education Day every year in the Spring, with a wide variety of workshops and demonstrations. This year it included a Parasite Talk, a Showmanship Talk/Demo, a Basic Genetic Talk, a Cheese Making Demo/Tasting and demonstrations of Hoof Trimming, Disbudding and Tattooing.
Two of my neighbors (from Montague, Massachusetts) gave the cheese demonstration. Kathy Burek and Alice Armen showed the crowd how to make chevre. (I did an article about Kathy in 2011 – click here)
