Program overview

Tuskegee University Annual Goat Day will be held on the third Saturday in April from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.  The theme of the Goat Day is usually designed to focus on ongoing problems of the producers and covers subjects ranging from nutrition, reproduction, and health, to marketing and enterprise budgeting. Depending on the selected theme, experienced speakers are invited throughout the nation to present topics related to the theme of the day. An essential component of the Goat Day is the Producer’s Panel where producers share their successes and failures with others. The afternoon sessions are hands-on sessions where producers learn how to evaluate an animal, do fecal egg counts and pasture management, etc.
