Maryland Dairy Goat Association 2020 Show update:

We regret to inform our members and show patrons that we must cancel the 2020 June Doe & Youth Show and the 2020 Buck Show. Even though we have held out in anticipation for the State of Maryland and Howard County to loosen gathering restrictions due to Covid-19, it has become painfully apparent that we will not be able to hold these events in 2020. We wish to extend our best wishes to all and look forward to seeing everyone at our 2021 shows!

MDGA President



***Judges Stipend Program***
Applications Due Feb. 15th

The Maryland Dairy Goat Association offers one annual
$500 stipend to either a first-time prospective ADGA judge or a current apprentice judge. In return, if the selected individual becomes a licensed judge, he or she agrees to judge two MDGA shows within the following two calendar years and waive his or her judging fee. Transportation and housing costs will be reimbursed by MDGA up to $500 as itemized in the expense report. Applications for this stipend must be received by February 15th. All candidates will be notified on or before March 1st as to whether or not they have been selected to receive the stipend for that year. The stipend will be awarded as a check made payable to the recipient after a training conference receipt is received by MDGA indicating that the candidate has attended and completed the Judges Training course.
