Well, at the Boulder County Fair, we were always looking for events for the dairy goat wethers (castrated males) to participate in, so we added Obstacle Courses, Cart Pulling and even their own Conformation and Showmanship Classes!
Two years ago we had so many goats entered in these classes that they decided to give us our own division - the Utiilty Goat Division. Last year, my friend and 4-H co-leader Melanie headed up that division, but this year she has taken over the role of Dairy Goat Superintendent, so I am now the Utility Goat Superintdent for the fair.
We had 53 goats entered in this division last year! It's not just for dairy wethers but for dry does, kids, market and fiber goats as well.
