1.   Sheep weigh-in is the second Saturday in May. Each youth exhibitor may choose from the following options: Option A - Each exhibitor may weigh in three lambs at the May weigh-in. Each exhibitor may bring up to two lambs to the fair to be shown as a pen, with both animals from that pen being shown as an individual market lamb. Option B - Within immediate families having more than one exhibitor, each exhibitor may weigh in two lambs. One separate lamb may be weighed in as the "family alternate". Each exhibitor may bring only two animals to the fair to be shown as a pen, with both animals from that pen being shown in individual market lamb classes. The "family alternate" must be designated and recorded with the superintendent at the first weigh in.

2.   There will be no replacement of market lambs after 45 days from the weigh-in date.

3.   Replacement animals must be tagged by appropriate superintendent and will not be eligible for rate of gain competition.

4.   An exhibitor may show both lambs from a pen in individual market classes as well as the pen class. Market lambs must be wethers or ewes.

5.   All breeds will show together in the market class.

6.   Charts must be posted above animals showing show weight and daily rate of gain.

7.   Lambs not sold at the auction sale are the responsibility of the exhibitor, to make arrangements with superintendents, for removal from the fairgrounds, not before 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

8.   Rate of Gain Champion will be figured on an individual basis, not a pen. Rate of Gain will be figured up to a maximum of 155 pounds.

9.   Sheep will be weighed on entry day of fair week, and must be at least 100 pounds to be sold at auction. Sheep weighing less may be shown showmanship classes only, but not sold.

10.  All blankets must be removed from sheep before going across the scale at fair weigh-in.

11. No drench feeding, hydration or medication of lambs. Any lamb requiring drench medication must be approved and supervised by a veterinarian. Tampering and/or misrepresentation of age, ownership, and any other irregularity in showing will be considered fraud and deception. Violation will result in the forfeiture of sale privileges. Unethical fitting or gluing of the hide or underneath the hide or removal of tissue to alter the shape of the animal, injection of any gas, solid or liquid under the hide to alter the normal conformation of the animal will also result in the forfeiture of sale privileges.
