1. Tag-in dates and place: Tag-in lambs at the Livestock Pavilion from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m., Saturday, June 4, 2022. (If an exhibitor misses the original tag-in date, they will have until Sunday, June 5, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. to contact the show superintendent. Exhibitors will have an opportunity for late tag-in but will be charged an additional $25.)

2. Ewe or wether lambs may be shown in the market show.

3. The top 80% up to 20 lambs will be sold in the premium auction provided they receive blue or red ribbons.

4. The judge will pick the sale order. 

5. All decisions of the judge and superintendent will be final.

6. All lambs must be shown in such a manner as the judge may require.  Lambs must be under the exhibitor's control at all times.

7. All lambs are to be weighed-in at the fair grounds on Wednesday afternoon, September 28, 2022, 
from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. All lambs must have milk teeth at this time. The lambs must be fed and cared for until Saturday night. Exhibitors not making the premium sale must pick up their lambs on Saturday by 10 a.m.

8. Lambs will be divided into several weight classes for the show.

9. Stall spaces will be assigned by the show superintendent prior to arrival.

10. All lambs will be slick shorn for the show. No wool over 1/4 of an inch will be allowed and if so the lamb will be subject to disqualification by the judge.
