Our entries for the Black and White Show are closed. Pens are full.


All sheep must be registered and their papers presented at check in.


Sheep may be penned from  noon on Thursday, October 16th  through  8am on Saturday, October 18th. Animals will be released on Sunday time to be announced at exhibitors meeting. No sheep will be released prior to this meeting.  While we understand that everyone wants to get going as soon as possible, we want those that have the longest distance to leave first. Please help us in making this happen. The ones traveling the longest distance need to be lined up outside of gate first.


Only sheep entered in the show, sale or breed display barn may be penned on the grounds. Health papers must be dated within 30 days of the Festival. After unloading, check in your entries with Sue Stewart at the registration table in Bldg 37.


A feed, straw and hay vendor will be present this Fall but it may be wise to make sure  that you have enough for your initial setup. Contact Mastens Feed directly to place orders in advance of show, as it will make it much easier to know what to bring. This will be the only way to be assured that your needs are met.
