SHEEP AND GOAT SHOW
SATURDAY AUGUST 8TH
Germantown Youth Livestock Show Welcomes YOU!
The Germantown Youth Livestock Show committee has finalized plans for the shows. We will mirror District Livestock Rules for each species from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. All decisions of the rules committee will be final in case there is a need for interpretation. Livestock exhibitors may show up to 3 animals. Registration forms will be available on the fair website (www.germantownfair.com) and on the Germantown Fair Facebook page. Registration forms and waivers may be returned at the Germantown District Shows, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the Germantown Fair Co., P. O. Box 150, Germantown, KY 41044. If mailing via U.S. Postal Service, the envelop must be post marked by July 25th.
Registration for all species will be from 7:00 AM to 8:30 AM with ALL weight cards turned in promptly by 8:30 AM. All species will declare weights; no animals will be weighed by show staff. The show staff reserves the right to weigh back any animal entered in the show. Animals over declared weight will be disqualified: swine – 15 lbs., sheep & goats – 10 lbs., feeders – 75 lbs. & fat steers – 100 lbs. Weight cards will be available at the double windows at the Secretary’s office behind the show barn. You should sign up for Showmanship at that time as well. Showmanship is NOT mandatory. The order for Showmanship will be: Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Novice. Seniors will be expected to be ready to enter the show ring beginning at 9:00 AM for Showmanship for all species. Feeders and fat steers will participate in a combined showmanship.
The Swine Show on Thursday, August 6th will feature weight classes and purebred classes. Purebred swine must have pedigree to show in purebred class. Class sheets will be posted on the board located on the show barn while showmanship is taking place. At the conclusion of those classes, there will be a Top 5 Overall Swine selection.
The Steer and Feeder Show will be on Friday, August 7th. Showmanship will be followed by Fat Steers then Feeders. The Top 5 Overall Steers and Top 5 Overall Feeders will be selected.
The Sheep & Goat Show on Saturday, August 8th will follow a bit different format. Sheep will show first. Senior Showmanship begins at 9:00 AM; weight classes will be next followed by a Top 5 Overall Sheep selection. Goat weight cards must be turned in by 9:30 AM. Goat showmanship will begin at the conclusion of the sheep show followed by weight classes then the Top 5 Overall Goat selection.
There will be a $5.00 admission fee charged for everyone entering the fair ground, but no entry fee will be charged to exhibit livestock. Awards will be presented to Showmanship winners; awards and premiums to class winners and Top 5 Overall winners. All exhibitors will receive a premium to show at this year’s event.
