Approximately 100 people attended the Goat Expo at Lincoln County Fairgrounds in North Platte on Oct. 5-6.

The main speaker for the seminar and the show judge was Dr. Fred C. Homeyer, a retired college professor of computer science and goat producer who has been involved with the meat goat industry for 20 years.

Homeyer has raised more than 20,000 meat goats at his Antelope Creek Ranch in Robert Lee, Texas since 1994. He is recognized as an international judge of Boer goats and has judged in more than 16 countries and 31 US states.

Champions in the show were:

• Grand Champion Buck -- Jim and Coleen Donaldson of Broadwater, on DK Cashue. The buck sold for $550 and was the highest selling animal at the expo.

• Grand Champion Doe -- Ron and Karen Helus of Kersey, Colo., on AHMG-685. The doe sold for $350.

• Reserve Grand Champion Buck -- Donna Corfield of Ogallala, on Lanha Domino a two-year-old buck. The buck was for show only, so it didn’t sell.

• Reserve Champion Doe -- Jim and Coleen Donaldson of Broadwater, on DK MOPPSY, born Jan. 15. The doe was for show only, so didn’t sell.

The highest selling doe lot sold for $525, for a March 2, 2013 class winner, MarchNorsk Debra, bred by Anne McGuire of Concordia, Kan.

The average selling price for bucks was $312.50 on four lots. The average for does was $268.68 on 34 lots.
