Happy New Year- 
AGA President, Mallory Kaiser

The year 2021 has again kept us tied closely with COVID19. The stress of not being able to appear and share our emotions and feelings towards each other has been tough. Funerals, weddings birthdays, and conferences have been mostly replaced with a screen.  In Alberta, we faced a terrible drought. Needless to say, producers mental health has been on the top of the minds of the AGA. 

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. 

Hope to see you soon!

Goat Producer Questionnaire


Lameness in goats can be a significant health and economic issue in some herds.  Your opinion is important to the goat industry to help gather baseline industry information to determine whether lameness and in particular footrot is a significant health issue in Alberta goat herds.  The results of this survey will determine future directions in research in goats, including whether Alberta research dollars should be invested in Canada in developing an effective footrot vaccine for goats.  The Alberta Goat Producers would appreciate it if you would complete this survey that is funded by RDAR (Results Driven Agriculture Research). This survey is voluntary, and your responses will be kept confidential. For completing the survey your name will be entered into a producer lottery for 2 cash prizes of $500 and we will send you a copy of the final results of the survey. 

 

Please complete the survey through this web link

or complete the survey fillable pdf form on the AGP website and return it by email to joyce@drjvd.com.  Closing date for the survey is January 15, 2022. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Dr. Joyce Van Donkersgoed at joyce@drjvd.com.
