The summer months are a busy time at Kara Kahl Farm. Our barn is full of kids and milkers, and the the huge garden is bursting with flowers. It’s been a productive time. We’ve also managed to get to two shows so far in 2015, and have enjoyed the competition and friendship of our friends and fellow breeders at these early shows.
Shows are a wonderful opportunity to socialize, but they are also a valuable exercise in herd and breeding program evaluation. As much as we like to do well in the show ring, we also enjoy seeing how our competitors have fared over the winter and spring months. We are all in the business of breeding beautiful animals and look to each other for inspiration in improving our respective breeds.
In addition to the club shows we’ve attended early this summer, look for us and our goats at the 2015 Olmsted County Fair in Rochester, Minnesota, the 2015 Iowa State Fair in Des Moines in mid-August, the 2015 Minnesota State Fair over Labor Day Weekend, and the annual Bluff Country Classic in Caledonia, Minnesota in mid-September. If you are interested in visiting with us or purchasing stock or semen, we are usually able to deliver animals or bring our tank to these events. Happy summer everyone and good luck at the summer shows!
