Dairy Goat Convention
A week-long event proves there's more to dairy goats than just cuteness, they're big business in North Carolina.
The American Dairy Goat Association is holding its national convention in Asheville for the first time.
The event features classes on everything from cheese-making, how to get started with dairy goats, to maintaining a herd.
Another highlight is Saturday's Spotlight Sale, where young dairy goats are sold at auction, some selling for as much as to $16,000.
Dr. Lauren Acton, American Dairy Goat Association, "in order to be in this sale, these animals have to be nominated in the spring, and just a few animals of each breed are selected from those nominated."
The spotlight sale will take place Saturday morning at 10am at the Crowne Plaza Resort, and is open to the public.
