2021 Dairy Goat Share-A-Kid Opportunity

Are you looking for a new and exciting way to expand your 4-H experience?  Interested in showing an animal, but don’t know if you can afford one of show quality?

Each year the Iowa Dairy Goat Association promotes interest in dairy goats across our state.  One of the ways IDGA encourages young people to explore this aspect of agriculture is through their Share-A-Kid program.

This statewide contest is open to youth in 4th thru 12th grades and who are a member of 4-H, FFA, IDGA, or any other agricultural group.  Winning applicants are selected from an essay they submit.  The essay can include drawings, photos or any other creative touches.  IDGA can only award one goat per family per year; however, siblings are encouraged to apply.  A person who has been awarded a goat in the past is ineligible to participate. 

If you are interested in this opportunity visit http://www.iowadairygoat.org/share-a-kid-program/for more details and an application form.  Entries must be postmarked by March 15, 2021.
