The carcass live shows will be held this week! The live beef show will be held tonight on Thursday, August 27 at 7:00 PM in the Coliseum, with check-in beginning at 6:00 PM. The live sheep show will take place in the sheep arena on Saturday, August 29th at 9:00 AM with weigh-in beginning at 8:00 AM. Unfortunately, the results portion of the carcass shows will not be open to the public, but video of the results shows will be available on the Wayne County 4-H Facebook page. Beef results will be available on the evening of Tuesday, September 1 and sheep results will be available on the evening of Thursday, September 3.
Due to current state and local guidelines surrounding COVID-19, the results portion of the beef and sheep carcass shows will not be open to the public. The live portions of these shows will still be conducted at the Fairgrounds following mask and social distancing guidelines. The animals will then be trucked to the processing facility as usual and graded by our judges, who will assist in the production of a video that will detail the scoring systems and the 2020 placing results. Once production is complete, this video will then be released the following evening on the Wayne County 4-H Facebook page and the species subgroups of this page. Thanks go out to everyone for your flexibility and willingness to adhere to mask and social distancing guidelines through this time.
