The most frequent request I get each
Fall is from new or first - year teachers about livestock shows their students
are eligible for . It's gotten impossible to keep up with every show and
Fair in north Georgia let alone the state . I have talked to Dr. Flanders
about creating a link on our web site that would list every show , other
than county shows , across the state and even beyond our borders
that are available to livestock exhibitors of all species . A teacher
could go to that site , print the list and make it available to exhibitors
and families that might be interested .
To do this we need your help .
Other than county shows please send me an area show that you are aware
of . The following information is needed to make this worth the effort
Name Of Show ---
Location of Show --- City and
Date(s) of Show ---
Contact Person(s) Including a
Phone Number/Email Address ---
Species Involved --- Example;
Dairy Heifers Only ; Beef Heifers Only ; Market Lambs , etc (
Be specific )
Please include shows already held and
thru June 2006 . Remember this also includes all the fairs . The
contact person may be you , your local county agent or a person in your
community ( we need the person in charge ) .
This list that we start with can be
built on each year and can be helpful to all teachers but especially those
beginning their career . So this won't drag out we need this by next Wednesday
. Take 2 minutes and help us out .
