The 21st annual Multi County Goat Show at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds in Plymouth will take place Saturday, June 23.
Sponsored by the Sheboygan County 4-H Goat Project families, 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 Dr. Gerry Schumann, who is licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture as a Wisconsin county fair judge. She hails from Oconomowoc, and has many years' experience working with goats and 4-H and FFA youth.
The Sheboygan County 4-H group will be offering a food stand as well as 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.
The entry fee is $2 per animal due by June 15; after June 15th the late entry is $3; entries the day of the show will also be accepted.
All exhibitors must furnish their own feed and bedding.
