Test your goat IQ

To help youth study for goat skillathons, an online quiz has been developed. The quiz is composed of mostly multiple choice questions, with a few true/false, matching, and sequencing questions.

Pictures accompany each question. Some questions allow multiple "guesses." The quiz covers all aspects of goat production: dairy, meat, and fiber. Sixty percent is a "passing" grade.

Adults can take the online quiz to test their goat IQ. Many of the questions are equally applicable to sheep.

A Youth Goat Skillathon will be held on Saturday, October 3rd, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center near Boonsboro, MD. The skillathon is being hosted by the 2nd Annual Western Maryland Goat Field Day & Sale. For information or to pre-register, contact Susan Schoenian at (301) 432-2767 x343 or sschoen@umd.edu.
