Once checked in for the show, you will be in the show chairs for the majority of the morning.

You are still responsible for checking on your rabbits in the evening.

      • Once you are weighed in, you will locate a pen for your goat and get set up. You may have to share a pen with someone else, so be mindful of space. 

      • Once in your pen, you can start setting up the feeding panels and buckets. I recommend you bring a small cut of a livestock panel and zip ties for your feeders to clip onto. I also recommend you have a muzzle on your goat, so they do not eat foreign objects.

      • Be on the lookout for your show class on the bulletin board near the show ring/lamb pens.

You can bring show boxes the night before or bring them that morning and unload them across from your steer’s stall. Please be mindful of space, we have a lot more steers this year than in the past, so space will be limited this year. 

      • Once in your stall, please make sure that you have a necktie for your steer. If you need one, ask Depine for one. ALL steers MUST have a necktie on their calves when not accompanied by the exhibitor and in the evening hours.
