    Seen that the other day on ADGA website. Mine will be 14-25 of May. I like that. Should have does clipped already for the LR show. It is first of May. Everyone should be 2-3 months fresh. Wonder who I'll get ??? Looking forward to it. Did it in 07 and had Steven Richter and learned a lot :biggrin

    Pretty pleased here also, the week before our club show! I see Kenny this weekend so I will have to get my name on the list first for her services :)

    I noticed the ADGA site said to give or take 2 weeks b/c all is yet tentative. How often does this happen? Not decided about LA this year (don't know if I'll have any freshened!), but if we do, I'm due 2 weeks prior to the start of IN, KY, TN dates.

    Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    Do you have someone to help that can present your animals while you just listen? We have awhile yet until deposits are due, and then the dates are set in stone, and even then we have room to then say, I can't do it this Wednesday, or that Saturday. But unless you have help fitting and the actual day of appraisal that isn't just small children, than I would pass this year. Vicki

    Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    Yep we are excited too, it is right after our club show and before our other club show...all goats will be shaved and hopefully all will be fresh by then, WOOHOO now to figure out who the appraiser is, MMMMMM?
     
  8. Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    Just how important is it that the goats be shaved?
    With the cows we don't have them show ready. Now, we will go to the effort of removing as much of the manure as possible, but beyond that we don't do any shaving for Linear Appraisal. Our next Linear Appraisal is in January...yuck.
    And if I were to have my does LA'd and I was having the Grades done (because that is basically what I have), I would have to have all of the recroded grades classified (if they have freshened) or would it come down to all the Recorded Grade Nubians if I chose them and I wouldn't have to do the Recorded Grade Alpines unless I chose them as well, for example?
    I'm guessing a local breeder or two are going to strongly consider LAing and they have very few animals...my animals would help fill up the slack and I wouldn't mind LAing. I know they won't do well, but it will help me learn more about dairy goat build. Just trying to determine who all I go ahead and record...lol

    Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    Well, I HATE our dates. It's still too early in the year for us to be at our best. Bah. I wish we'd go back to the middle of August again.

    Roseanna, I know everyone says that they need to be show clipped -- but honestly, I know quite a few herds that don't -- and they STILL got 92's! A good goat is going to be good shaved or not. A mediocre goat -- well, appraisers are only human, and maybe, just maybe, you can squeek another point out of a nicely presented animal. However, it is not required at all.

    I didn't clip bucks this year, and had one go 91 and the other 89 as a yearling.

    Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    Well, I'm pretty excited as this will be our first LA and June is perfect here for it. July or Aug is just too darned hot for anyone let alone a goat to be out in the sun. I suppose I could set up a walk through the side yard as it is shaded. Not trying to steal this thread but do you guys think that being a host is a bad thing? Wouldn't we as hosts get to go through first? Tammy
     
  12. Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    My worry would be ruining a goat by shaving it improperly.. :rofl

    At this point, I like those dates for Ohio. Especially since it looks like I'll be freshening does into late June/early July this year.

    Re: Tentative 09 LA schedule

    I just think appraisal like showing is important, if you are going to spend that kind of money on it, do it right. Why have them hairy and then blame your scores on the appraiser being blind ;) I don't want to be able to give myself any excuses, my scores are my scores.

    Roseanna, it takes about 2 minutes to learn to shave a goat :) What clippers do you have and what blade numbers? Vicki

    Whoo Hoo.. I've been waiting for those dates!

    I learn more in one LA session than I dreamed I would. I just wished I had taped it.

    BTW.. I'm hosting again this year.. for those in MS.

    Perfect timing here also, two weeks after our spring club show so we will be all clipped and pretty.

    Same here Paula, not a huge fan of the date change, but we will have to make due. Maybe I'll just do a special session in August instead... much less to worry about in August. :) Seems like we are always either right before or right after Nationals.

    Cows shed, goats don't. If I'm paying $225 for a session...I want my girls looking their best. Bucks?? They generally get clipped anyway to keep them cool...so no biggy.

    Just wondering who? Could I be lucky enough to get John,Eric or Brett again???

    Even dry, the appraisers can tell what the udder is going to look like fresh. Since I was in such a hurry to get does bred this year...even late April-May isn't going to bother me.
