Sheep Judging Workshop for Wool Breeds

Are you a sheep judge or plan to judge in the upcoming year? If so, do you judge shows at the community, county, state, and national levels? During these judging events, have you ever been asked to judge multiple breeds? More specifically, have you ever been asked to judge a wool breed of sheep?

If you answered yes to the above questions, there is an event that you should attend as you prepare for the 2018 show season. For those that may not feel as comfortable with judging wool sheep, The Ohio State University Extension will be holding a sheep judging workshop that specifically focuses on wool breeds. This workshop is designed to improve the ability of judges to evaluate fleece quality in breeds of sheep that highly value fleece quality on their breed standard scoring card. This workshop will include hands on judging of live sheep and fleeces of different wool breeds.

This workshop is scheduled to be held on April 7, 2018 at the Findlay University Livestock Center. Please follow the link for registration information. There is a class limit of 35 participants. For those that are interested, please register for this workshop as soon as possible!
