Event Information

Educational Seminars - To Be Determined

A variety of educational seminars will be given on Saturday. Presentations will be made upstairs in the 4-H Building, where the vendors and concessions are located.

Showmanship Clinics

Showmanship clinics provide instruction on showing and fitting for dairy and pygmy goat projects.  No market showmanship clinic this year.  Hands-on practice with members and their goats will take place in their designated building. Check the schedule of events for times. Bring your animal and get some practical advice that will help you be successful in the show ring!  Blowers will not be allowed to be used when the showmanship clinic is going on, no exception.  In the past it has been difficult to hear when the blowers are being used at the same time.

Jackpot Showmanship Contests

Youth exhibitors can test their skills in Jackpot Showmanship contests for market, dairy and pygmy divisions. Divisions are: Pre-Junior (8-9 years old); Junior (10-11); Intermediate (12-14); and Senior (15-18), age as of Dec. 31. Entry is $5/member. You can pre-enter on the registration form, or you can register at show time. Cash premiums will be awarded.  All cash prizes must be picked up at the announcers table before the end of the show.  Market Champion showman will receive a buckle as well.

Pee Wee & Novice showmanship classes are also offered. There are no entry fees for these classes. They are intended to give young and first year members an opportunity to gain experience in the show ring. Ownership of the animal is not required for showmanship.

*If it's your first year in showmanship, you can show in the novice class and your age group.
