Correction to the LINK about the goat rule change.
Horns will be permitted for Boer Breeding Does. Market wethers, dairy, and pygmy goats will continue to be dehorned with not horns/scurs longer than 1/2".
We wanted to make you aware of this change as kidding season is right around the corner! Any other rule changes and/or additions will be announced at the Advisor trainings and the 2018 Project Guidelines.
