Hoegger Supply is at the ADGA National Show!

This being our first time at the American Dairy Goat Association Nation Show, we were not really sure what to expect.  .  The only sure thing was that we would have a nice long drive from Fayetteville, GA to West Springfield, MA in a box truck full of goat supplies and our giant barn booth.  It is now one thousand and fifty-two miles later and we are thrilled to be here!

 

As a Southerner, I’m used to a hot July, but I was looking forward to a nice cool week in New England.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  When we arrived, the thermometer was holding steady at the 100 degree mark.  It’s cooled down just a bit now, and here’s to hoping it stays that way.  As I sit here, the power is out and we are under a tornado warning. It makes the humans somewhat jumpy, but the goats are cheerfully content, completely oblivious to the threatening weather.

Our booth is located in the Mallory Hall Livestock Pavilion, just about 30 yards away from the show ring.  You can’t miss us; our booth is basically a big red barn.  It is amazing here.  There are over 1,600 dairy goats that have been registered for the show and we are expecting to see somewhere in the neighborhood of 4,000 people throughout the week.  All the animals, vendors and participants are in this giant building maybe 350 yards long and 150 yards wide.  It creates quite an interesting noise and there is always something fun happening.

 

So far most of our conversations have been around the Hoegger Milking Machine.  We’ve set one up right in our booth and have milked a bunch of the show goats here for demonstrations.  Of the 6 we brought, so far 1 has been sold and 2 others have been spoken-for! We will definitely bring more next year.

 

The show has been educational for us, and it’s been amazing to meet so many of our awesome customers. They have been coming up to us in the booth and thanking us for being here.  As the Platinum Sponsor of the 2011 ADGA show, we are visible everywhere here at the Big E, as the Eastern States Exposition Center is known.  We are having a fantastic time and looking forward to the rest of the week!
