Thank You. The 2018 BPI was a huge success.
The organizing partners of the BPI want to thank all of those who contributed to the 2018 event and thank the consignors and buyers who made the event a success. Thanks to the consignors for all their help with check-in and checking-out the goats. There were very high quality goats on offer and buyers and sellers were satisfied with the event and goats went all over the country from the sale. The educational conference was well attended and there was enthusiastic participation from the crowd in attendance. We look forward to seeing you all again next year in 2019.
Performance makes the difference
The host farms of the BPI are all multiple time finalists and winners of multiple central performance tests across the country. Each one is well established and successfully following breeding strategies that succeed. In inviting performance test participants from central performance tests, the hosts intend to gather a group of superior goats for sale at the BPI Sale every year. The consignors are selected from the tests because they have shown that performance matters to their programs.
Kentucky is a great location to encourage participation from across the country
While performance-testing goat-breeders are familiar with traveling, having the event at a location which enables breeders to easily participate helps both buyers and sellers minimize their driving time and maximize the quality and variety of goats on offer at the sale.
