MDGA Shows

Putting On A Show 

Are you interested in putting on an MDGA Live Show? 
I’m Kerry O’Neal, the MDGA Live Show Chair, and I’m here to help!

MDGA has a ton of resources for you to learn more about putting on a show…everything from pre-show planning, budgeting, venue selection, timing, judges, show rules, and other tips and tricks to ensure a successful show!

Check out our “How to Put on a Goat Show: A Comprehensive Guide” webinar on YouTube below!

Also, please consider joining the MDGA Live Show Committee Facebook Group where you can connect with others nationwide to learn more about mini dairy goat shows.

If you are in the early stages of planning an MDGA Live Show, please consider completing the Save the Date form to have your show listed on the website.  This will let exhibitors in your area know that the show is planned!  Once your details are arranged, you can complete the official Sanction Application.

I am here to help, so if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
