Livestock Club Meeting Change and Announcement of Sheep and Goat Weigh-in

Livestock Club members need to refer to an email message sent. There will be no meeting this week, but it's postponed to next week for a demonstration.

The sheep and goat weigh in will be Monday, May 9, from 4:00-6:30 p.m. at the Virginia Tech Northern Piedmont Center on Rt. 15 south of Orange. (14471 Research Rd.) This weigh in and nomination process is required for all market lambs and goats to be shown or sold at the Orange County Fair.

Additionally, members who wish to nominate animals for the State Fair sheep and goat shows may do so at the same time. For the State Fair tags, there is a fee of $5 per head, with checks made payable to the Virginia 4-H Foundation. No cash or cards will be accepted. Nominating animals at the county weigh-in site will save you a trip to another location in June.

If you have questions about the weigh-in or nomination process for county or state fair, please call 672-1361.
