OHIO CHEVIOT BREEDERS STARTER FLOCK AWARD

The Ohio Cheviot Breeders Association (OCBA) is seeking applicants for the Jim Cluff Memorial Starter Flock Award.

The OCBA started the contest in 1994 to award a Cheviot starter flock to an Ohio youth up to 17 years of age. The purpose of the award is to introduce the youth to the enjoyment of raising and owning a purebred Cheviot sheep, as well as encouraging the growth of new Cheviot breeders in Ohio.

The contest winner will receive the following: a one-year membership in the OCBA, one bred ewe the first year, one ram the second year and in the third year the youth will donate a lamb to continue the award.

The application deadline is September 30th. For an application and contest rules please contact the Ohio Cheviot Breeders Association Starter Flock Committee Chairperson, Tabitha Weisend, at 740-459-9751 or tabithasregcheviots@yahoo.com.

A Day in the Ring

Back for it’s second year, A Day in the Ring adds cattle to the show!  A Day in the Ring was held on Thursday, July 25, in the Gibbons Arena.  The show was a special event in partnership with the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities.  Clermont County Junior Fair youth were partnered with an individual from the Board of Developmental Disabilities to educate them about their project and teach them how to show a goat or cow.  Participants then exhibited their animal in a non-competitive show.  The goal of A Day in the Ring is to allow individuals with special needs the opportunity to achieve success in the show ring and for 4-H members to utilize their animal projects to mentor others.

After the show, contestants and their mentors enjoyed lunch together, and a few were featured in a live broadcast with 99.5FM The Edge!
