Around 35 to 40 people attended the 2016 Fall Conference held by the Indiana Dairy Goat Association regarding artificial insemination for goats on Sunday, October 2nd, 2016, at the New Salem Lions Club, New Salem, Indiana.   It was a wonderful presentation and great question / answer time for such an important topic in the dairy goat industry.  Presentations were followed up by ultrasound demonstration of does to confirm pregnancy.

IDGA  ... May 10, 2016

The Vet Tech Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana, is trying to locate 1 - 3 goat herd owners within a 1 hour drive of NE Indianapolis that would be willing to have my students come out to work with their goats.  We would provide vaccinations and deworming, and would be a good way for a goat owner with a limited income to get veterinary care for their herd at no cost.  Please contact Peg Villanueva, DVM, Veterinary Technology Program Manager at pvillanueva@ibcindianapolis.edu or phone (317) 813-2313.  Thank You

Online Entry System is Now Open for the 2016 Indiana State Fair

 Libby Fritz - Ag Communications Manager /

 Indiana State Fair Commission ... Mar 10, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS—Entries for competitive exhibits are now being accepted online through Exhibitor’s Corner for the 2016 Indiana State Fair Celebrating Indiana’s Bicentennial.

Exhibitor’s Corner offers competitors the opportunity to enter multiple exhibits in all 4-H and Open Class livestock competitions. Additionally, exhibitors can enter contests in Agriculture & Horticulture, Indiana Arts (formerly Home and Family Arts), the Brewer’s Cup, and more. This is the second year using Exhibitor’s Corner and exhibitors from 2015 will be able to use the same login as last year.

“We have made enhancements to the system based on exhibitor feedback,” said Douglas Huntsinger, Executive Producer of the Indiana State Fair. “One significant enhancement is allowing for information sharing between 4-H and the State Fair through integration between 4HOnline and Exhibitor’s Corner.”
All 4-H Exhibitors need to register through both 4HOnline and Exhibitor’s Corner, however, exhibitors can now check a box in 4HOnline that allows information to be sent directly to Exhibitor’s Corner. Personal information will not be sent, only animal information that will later be verified by an email address.

The integration with the two systems will save families time from filling out multiple registrations and when they arrive on the fairgrounds for check-in. Animals that are imported to the Exhibitor’s Corner from 4HOnline will not have to be verified day of check-in that they are 4-H identified animals. If exhibitors choose not to send animal information to the Indiana State Fair, then 4-H staff will have to confirm those animals during check in using both systems instead of just the State Fair system.

Other enhancements to Exhibitor’s Corner will allow exhibitors to select multiple classes at a one time, make multiple entries into a single class, and record stall, tie-ring, and donation information to the individual exhibitor and not the account.

There will be more info on age requirements, rules for the event itself, and time and date in the near future.  We want all of our participants (children and goats) to be safe. When the rules come out please go over them closely and understand them fully.  They will be enforced. Last year was great as ALL of our participants were mindful of our safety rules.
