Tradewinds Dairy Goats

2007 NAILE Report


Our last show that we attended this 2007 show season was the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, Kentucky the first weekend in November. I always enjoy going as it gives me a chance to exhibit against animals outside our normal show area. The facility is beautiful and it actually is my husband, John’s and my mini vacation “with the goats”. Next year Nationals will be held there.I usually don’t like to show kids but did take three. They placed 1x1st and 2x3rd. In the yearling milker class Sabrina was 1st and Sasha was 3rd. Polly was 1st place two year old and went on to be Reserve Champion. Valerie was 2nd place two year old. Vicenta was 1st place three year old and Veronica was 1st place four year old and then Grand Champion and BDIS and BUIS. We did well in the Group Classes and ended being Premier Saanen Breeder and Exhibitor. And believe it or not my husband actually helped show.
