Sheboygan County 4-H Goat Project families will again host the 21st annual Multi County Goat Show at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth on Saturday, June 25.
The show is a "fun" show, not sanctioned, and typically attracts over 100 entrants in dairy, meat and pygmy breeds. The entrants can choose to compete in both breed and showmanship classes. All breeds will be judged separately and classes will be broken down according to the animal's age. Registration papers are not required. Showmanship classes will include senior, intermediate, junior and beginner.
This year's judge will be Clara Hedrich, who is licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture as a Wisconsin County Fair Judge. She is from Chilton, and has many year's experience working with goats and 4-H and FFA youth.
The Sheboygan County 4-H group will be offering a food stand and a raffle, which will be held in conjunction with the show with proceeds used to help support this show and support the goat project.
Show awards include ribbons and prizes in the breed classes and trophies for grand champion showmanship classes. The show is open to all youths up to the age 18 including all 4-H and FFA members in Wisconsin. Entrants may register at 8 a.m. with judging to begin at 9 a.m. Entry fee is $2 per animal due by June 17th; after June 17th the late entry is $3. Entries will be accepted the day of the show.
All exhibitors must furnish their own feed and bedding. To request a class list or any additional information, contact Julia Bozic 920-980-5543 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
