We have an exciting SHOWMANSHIP opportunity for you in a location near you in Norwalk, OH. Chastin Leggett, from You Gotta Believe Livestock Camps, is holding a sheep and goat livestock camp on May 1st-2nd, 2021 at the Huron County Fairgrounds, Norwalk OH.
Your campers will receive hands on learning and 1 on 1 showmanship coaching with industry leading counselors while working and practicing with your OWN animal.
Things also covered in camp are:
- Livestock selection and evaluation
- Livestock basic nutrition
- How to fit and prepare your animal for show

Showmanship Sign-ups – these will also be completed online this year. There is a deadline to sign-up that is different for specie. If an exhibitor misses their deadline, have them talk to the specie superintendent to see if they can be added late. We have a cutoff time prior to their show day so that we can pull the report, sort by age, and get this to the superintendent as soon as possible to prepare for their show. The direct link for signing up for showmanship is: http://go.osu.edu/fc2020showmanship
DUNF Forms – These will be completed online this year. I would suggest that exhibitors should not fill them out until as close to weigh-in/move-in day as possible to ensure the information is correct and their market/lactating animal is drug free moving into fair. The link to the online DUNF Form is in each of the 2020 Specie Documents (http://go.osu.edu/2020fairinfo). A direct link to the DUNF is: http://go.osu.edu/fairfielddunf. If someone submits a form with errors, please have them contact Leslie Cooksey at email@example.com so we can delete that record and they will be asked to submit a new form.
Market Poultry exhibitors will not have identification until fair weigh-in for their birds. Please put TBD in the identification field and we will update your form after weigh-in.
