Welcome to Boise, Idaho, site of
the 2015 American Dairy Goat Association Annual Meeting
We hope you will join us this October to discover ADGA's
Hidden Treasure at the Riverside
Hotel in Boise. Boise is the capital city of Idaho
and the county seat. Established during the gold
rush days of the 1800s, Fort Boise which was owned by
the Hudson Bay Company, was established by British fur
traders in 1834. The fort was abandoned in 1854 due to
infrequent Indian raids. A new fort was built in 1863 to
protect the many travelers coming to the area during the
gold rush days. A townsite was established next to the
fort and that has become the present day Boise. From
historic sites, the Boise Zoo, museums, and recreational
areas, Boise has something for everyone. The Boise River
Greenbelt is accessible from the local park.
The week will be filled with educational seminars, AASRP
programming, multiple youth events and hands-on events
such as soap making and AI seminars. The ADGA annual
meeting will be held as well as the Judges TC and the
Spotlight Sale. The Banquet and Costume Ball will be
held Friday evening as well as a Champagne and Dessert
buffet which will precede the Spotlight Sale on Saturday
evening this year.
If you are
interested in pursuing a judging license, make plans to
