Hello all my Nigerian loving friends!
I need a little help and I'm hoping some of you can help. Recently, I was informed by a 4-Her I helped get started that her Nigerians were turned away for entry in the dairy goat show at her county 4-H show. She was told they don't belong in dairy and was forced to show with the Pygmy goats.
I happen to have a connection with this county 4-H and mentioned this story to the county director. Given my previous volunteer history in the county with the goat project, he 100% believed me and said he would get things corrected so Nigerians can show as dairy. However, since he is not a goat person, he wants me to give him some pieces of evidence he can take with him to the livestock committee meeting in case he is challenged so he has credibility.
Here's where your help would be valued. :)
Obviously, I can give him a link to the ADGA to show that the breed is recognized, but what else can I give him? Thoughts?
