Corral your children and let them try their hand at showing a sheep at the Dodge County Fair. This will be the ninth year of the Little Shepherds Showmanship Contest in which youth demonstrate their sheep showmanship abilities, while practicing for future participation in the sheep project or just having some fun.

This contest is open to anyone 4 years of age and older (up to grade 4). Contestants will use a sheep that is already located at the fairgrounds and being exhibited by Sheep Project members. Judging is based on proper showmanship techniques. This event will take place in the sheep building around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 19th. Pre-registrations forms can be picked up at the Dodge County UW-Extension Office or through the Open Class Fair book. Look for flyers, sign-up sheets and more information at this year’s Dodge County Fair.
