2019 BUCKEYE CONFERENCE

September 28, 2019

The Ohio Dairy Goat Association Buckeye Sale Committee is soliciting nominations for the 2019 Buckeye Sale that will be held in conjunction with the Annual Conference at The Ohio State University, Animal Science Building, in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday evening September 28, 2019. The Buckeye Sale is a unique opportunity to accentuate the accomplishments of your herd. Animals selected are of the highest quality available.

The committee will look for animals from herds using official DHIR, linear appraisal and show records. Please keep this in mind when nominating as it ultimately reflects your entire herd, herd management and breeding program. This sale strives to attract buyers from all over and they want top quality, performance proven, sound and healthy dairy goats. The value of your herd’s advertisement and the name recognition it generates can be considerable.

Rest assured that your nomination will receive serious and thorough consideration in our selection process. The Buckeye Sale Committee works very hard to put together a sale that is a successful and positive experience for all parties involved. We all know that quality sells, proven animals, from both sides of a pedigree are needed especially when nominating buck kids.
