  2008 North Valley Dairy Goat Association Show


NVDGA will be hosting it's annual ADGA-sanctioned show on May 17-18, 2008 at the Tehama County Fairgrounds, 650 Antelope Blvd, in Red Bluff, CA.

The big change this year is that we are going from one day and two rings to two days and four rings! In these days of high gas prices and faltering shows, this is an efficient way to show your goats.

Update, 5/13/08: Meals!

There will be a complimentary lasagna dinner on Friday evening. On Saturday evening the Shasta County 4-H Meat Goat Project members will be serving a dinner which is payable by donation.

Judges & Sanctions

Saturday Seniors and Juniors: Sam Whiteside,  Kristi Bozzo-Baldenegro

Saturday Juniors, Sunday Seniors: Chuck Pedersen, Robert Bourassa

This will be eight sanctions: Separate Sr. and Jr. sanctions for each ring.


Two senior shows will be judged each day: Saturday and Sunday.

All four junior shows will be judged on Saturday afternoon in a "4-ring circus" format. Instead of goats moving between rings, the goats for each breed will stay in their respective rings and the judges and secretaries will move between rings. This will allow for an earlier departure on Sunday for those who travel any distance.


Our raffle is legendary! We accept donations . We have a nice milkstand and scores of excellent items that will be available to be raffled off, including useful dairy goat supplies, things for children, and fun things as well.

Special Hotel Arrangements
