The Kentucky Department of Agriculture Goat Program annually sponsors seven District Market Shows, one District Market & Breeding show, and three Kentucky Junior Livestock Expos. These events allow youth exhibitors to showcase their market goats, commercial does or breeding stock across the state. Included in these shows there are divisions for Kentucky Proud participants. Any animal born and raised in Kentucky is eligible for this program and any youth exhibiting these animals with a legitimate Kentucky Proud tag will receive additional premiums and be in contingent for Kentucky Proud winnings at the Kentucky State Fair. KDA staff is responsible for organizing and managing each of these shows. Exhibitors accumulate points throughout the season in competition for awards to be presented at a Points Banquet at the conclusion of the season.
