***NEW: Sheep/goats validated during June 2023 WILL BE ELIGIBLE for 2024 Spring Major Shows. Market sheep/goats validated for the 2023 State Fair will carryover for 2024 Spring Major Shows. The validated animal MUST stay in the care of the exhibitor who validated it. If the exhibitor chooses to sell the project to a new exhibitor, the new exhibitor MUST REVALIDATE the project within the next validation period (October 2023).***
Previously Major Show validated breeding animals (registered, wether/commercial) do NOT need to be validated again UNLESS ownership has changed.
***NEW: All Major Show heifers will now be tagged. Previously validated heifers will NOT be required to get tagged unless they have changed ownership or breed.***
Order what is necessary, the Extension Office does not order extra. Refunds will not be given.
