American Goat Federation elects new board members

The American Goat Federation just concluded the 2013 election of new members to the board of directors. Two new directors will be seated on the board at the annual meeting in Charleston, S.C., on Jan. 25, 2014.

Becky Sauder, from Carlsbad, Texas, will be an at large director on the board. She is employed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Livestock Market News Service in San Angelo, Texas, where she covers the market reports for the sheep and goat sale there, which is the largest sheep and goat sale in the United States. She was initially involved in the research and development of the live guidelines that USDA has used for describing goats in market reports. She also assisted in the IMPS developed for goat carcasses. Sauder has been involved in raising goats for almost 30 years, first commercial meat goats and then registered Boer goats. Along with her sister, she ran a fitting service and showed Boer goats all over the U.S. They currently have a small herd of dairy goats in addition to Boer goats. From 1993 to 1994 she served on the board of the American Meat Goat Association.

Vicki Stich, from New Albin, Iowa, will be representing the American Boer Goat Association on the AGF Board. She has been active in the ABGA for several years and is currently in her second term as a director on the ABGA Board. During her tenure on the ABGA Board she chaired the Breed Standards Committee and also assists the ABGA staff with the National Show every year. In addition, she attended the National Goat Expo in 2012 and 2013 as a representative of the ABGA. In addition to serving on the ABGA board, Stich raised and showed Boer goats for several years.

Returning AGF directors are Linda Campbell from Virginia, Anita Dahnke from Indiana, Sam Abney from Alabama, Thomas Boyer from Utah, Bob Buchholz from Texas, Jan Carlson from California, Terry Hankins from Mississippi, and An Peischel from Tennessee. The American Goat Federation is a national organization whose mission is to represent, unify, improve and advance the American goat industry and assist producers to achieve maximum success. The AGF collects and makes available news of interest to all segments of the industry. The AGF Facebook page contains up to the minute information about what the AGF is doing for the goat industry as well as what other agencies are engaged in that affect producers.
