Weigh in for the Wisconsin State Fair Junior Sheep Performance Division is quickly approaching. The performance division emphasizes the exhibitor’s ability to select and raise lambs which will be evaluated on rate of gain, carcass merit and visual appraisal.
Eligible performance division lambs must be RFID ear tag identified and have submitted DNA through the WLIC statewide identification program by the May 8, 2018 deadline.
Those who wish to exhibit in the 2018 Wisconsin State Fair Performance Lamb Division must have their lambs weighed at one of the following locations. Exhibitors must contact a Performance Site Coordinator in advance to confirm participation.
