ADGA Youth is an integral part of the American Dairy Goat Association and offers opportunities to interact with other AG-minded youth, learn more about dairy goats and gain valuable life skills. Official ADGA Youth participation begins with a $10 ADGA Youth annual membership.  Apply for your membership on our ADGA.org site.  Apply for Youth Membership >>

There are two annual national events: The National Show in late June or early July and Annual Convention in October. The National Show is a competition while Annual Convention focuses on more educational activities.

Local dairy goat associations like 4-H and FFA are a places to connect with ADGA Youth on a more frequent basis and will offer varying levels of educational and show opportunities. Contact your local Extension Office to learn more about what opportunities are available in your area.

If you love to care for animals, love talking with friends about farm related things and want to improve your management skills,  ADGA Youth is the place for you!
