There is a lot of confusion about the maximum weight of market lambs at our June 8, 2019, weigh in. The information on the flyer that was handed out and posted in the sheep barn, as well as reiterated at the banquets did not make the fair book this year. The fair book is the official rules of our fair and cannot be altered after printing, therefore we will be following the rules as stated in the fair book. The difference in wording was completely overlooked at the time of editing. I understand that this affects a lot of projects and I, as the chairman, take responsibility for this. It is not the intention of the sheep department committee nor my own to create problems but to try and create a “market project” and be fair to all.
This along with rules set in the past will be addressed.
Please DO NOT call the fair office or the extension office to voice your opinions, this matter does not pertain to them and they CAN NOT answer any questions.
This is a sheep department issue and it will be resolved.
My apologies from myself ,the committee and the board.
