- Prior to the show, the Show Secretary must be shown the original registration or recordation certificate, an ADGA stamped duplicate application or a faxed copy of application or original if stamped by the ADGA office. No electronic stamped duplicates will be viewed/allowed; hard copies must be present.
- Check in must be completed 1 hour before the start of the day’s first show, fees paid by that time. To check in, entries must be listed on an official entry form either already sent to the show secretary OR you may bring the form with you OR fill out the form there.
- All goats must have a current health certificate issued within 60 days of the date of show. Out of state animals – Negative TB and Brucellosis test within 30 days of show (NO TEST REQUIRED IF YOU COME FROM A FREE STATE) or originate from a certificate and accredited herd.
- The show committee asks that no animals showing evidence of sickness, disease or contagious lesions be brought to the show. This includes but is not limited to ringworm, sore mouth, and abscesses. If the show committee sees an animal that causes concern, you may be asked to trailer the animal for the remainder of the show.

- All animals must be properly collared and restrained when not in their pens.
- All animals must be disbudded, dehorned, or polled.
- Dogs are allowed but must be kept leashed and under control. Loose dogs will not be permitted. If any dog is causing any issues such as excess barking, jumping, or generally making other people or animals nervous, you will be asked to contain the dog in your vehicle or trailer or you may be asked to remove them from the grounds entirely.
- Camping: There are no camper hookups at the barn. If you are planning to camp out and are setting up a tent or cot, we do ask that it be set up out of the way to not block any exits or aisle ways. If we have enough people looking to camp out, we may be able to secure an additional area/building that would be solely intended as a camping location.
- If someone is observed using excess force with their own or another’s animal, they can be asked to leave the show. UC Dairy Goat Club reserves the right to determine what excessive force entails.
- Smoking. There will be no smoking allowed in or near the barns, but there will be ample areas around the grounds where smoking will be permitted.

- Shavings only in pens. No straw bedding allowed.
- UC Dairy Goat Club Show Committee has the right to change or add to the show rules as needed.
- The UC Dairy Goat Club’s main goal is to provide an environment where goat enthusiasts of all backgrounds, ages, and experience levels can come together to learn, share their passion for their goats, support each other, and generally have a positive experience! Anyone displaying poor sportsmanship, disrespectful behavior towards other exhibitors, the judges, Putnam County Fair, volunteers, or others will be asked to leave and will not be permitted to participate in any future club sponsored events.
