The Central Montana Dairy Goat Association will hold a two-day show and vendors’ gathering on July 13 and 14 at the Weatherbeater Arena in Choteau.
The third annual show starts at Friday at 6 p.m. with a goat showmanship clinic followed by a costume contest at 7:30 p.m. The goat show starts on Saturday at 8 a.m. and goes until all the classes of stock have been shown.
Organizers Leigh Greyn of the Grazing Greyn Acres farm outside of Dutton and Heidi Brandt of Seven Winds Farm outside of Great Falls are organizing this year’s show.
The first year the show was held at the baseball complex at Dutton. With the growth of the show, it was moved to the indoor arena in Choteau the second year.
The show will draw exhibitors showing Nigerian dwarf, Alpine, Saanen, Nubian and possibly other breeds of goats to the show.
Venom Smokehouse, a food vendor who prepares barbecue meals, will be at the show on Saturday.
“Come check out all different breeds of goats and bid on items at the auction table,” Greyn said. “Come have lunch or dinner and bid on some of the silent auction items.”
