Sheep Carcass Contest Changes

The carcass results show will be taking place at 3-D Meats on September 1st at 6:00 PM. 3-D Meats has been very gracious in offering to do this for us on short notice, and are willing to do the same standard cut on the lambs for the same cost as Boliantz Packing has in the past.
