  • HT and PT tests on sheep, A-Course sheep and ducks, as well as B-Course ducks.
  • Judges both days will be Sean and Sharol Hathaway from Kentucky.

Instinct Testing: If we have sufficient livestock available after the trial has closed, we will offer Instinct testing. If available, the Instinct tests will be offered both days after the completion of the trials. As of 3/5/2017, it appears we will not have the stock count... yeah.. we are disappointed too.

Lunch will be available for purchase at $8.00 per person. Sign up for lunch on the Consolidated Order Form. Payment for your lunch will be at the show site.

Please contact Cheryl or Renee if you have any items you might wish to donate. Proceeds raised benefit the bottom line on our herding trials.
