The First National Dairy Goat Awareness Day
On June 12, 1986, the American Dairy Goat Association presented six dairy goat kids to the US Department of Agriculture. The day is recognized as the first National Dairy Goat Awareness Day and was commemorated by a gathering under a tent near the Washington Monument in Washington, DC.
At the presentation, a painting of President Ronald Reagan with dairy goats at his ranch and an ADGA Lifetime Membership were presented to President Ronald Reagan. Appropriately, a goat cheese reception followed the presentation.
Photos from this event and a letter of appreciation from President Ronald Reagan to the American Dairy Goat Association president at that time, Daniel J. Considine, are proudly displayed at the American Dairy Goat Association office in Spindale, North Carolina.
