Open & 4-H Classes
Sheep are judged on those physical traits that indicate leanness and quantity of retail product, and ensure the health and comfort of the animal.
Breeding classes combine the importance of sound legs along with size, muscling and leanness. Market classes focus more on thick muscling and leanness.
Sheep raised for wool will be evaluated on the physical quality of their fleece. These sheep will not look as “white” or clean because they are not washed with shampoo which would damage the quality of their fleece.
