Georgia Goat Point Program (GGPP)


The following point system was establishe in an attempt to:

A   Promote the exhibition of club goats

B    Increase participation in goat showmanship

C    Recognize and reward successful Georgia 4-H and FFA club goat

1.     Participating exhibitors will pay a *$5 “goat nomination fee” *on
each goat they want to be eligible to receive points.  This *one-time per
show season fee* makes an exhibitor eligible to earn points on a specific
goat.  This eligibility remains in effect for the exhibitor nominating the
goat through the State Meat Goat Show.  100% of the goat nomination fees
will be used to fund the Georgia Goat Point Program.

2.     This goat nomination fee must be paid prior to the start of the
approved show in which the exhibitor wants to receive points.  If a
nomination fee is paid after the start of an approved show, that goat will
be eligible to earn points in the next approved show in which they are

3.     Each participating exhibitor will earn points on their highest point
goat (1 head) at each *approved* show.

4.     Points will be awarded as follows:

Grand Champion
15 points

Reserve Grand Champion
14 points

Div Champions, not selected as Grand or Res Champion               13 points

Res Division Champions, not selected as Res Grand                         12

All remaining class exhibitors receive
  5 points

5.      Points are *not* dependent upon class size, and divisions are
*not*required (
*but suggested*) by the point system.  If divisions are not selected, then
those points will not be awarded in that approved show.

6.     Showmanship classes will be divided by the exhitor’s upcoming grade
in school (class as of Fall or 2011)and the top 5 showmen in each grade will
receive points. (1st=5 points, 2nd=4 points, 3rd =3 points, 4th = 2 points,
and 5th = 1 point) regardless of class breaks.  All exhibitors enteing the
showmanship class will receive 0.5 points.

7.     For a show to be approved and award points in the GGPP system, that
show pays a $50 “*approved show eligibility fee*” one week prior to last day
entries are accepted for the show to allow notification to exhibitors.  All
show eligibility fees will be used to fund this point program.

8.     Each exhibitor may count any five shows on the GGPP approved list and
The State Meat Goat Show at the Georgia National Fair which serves as the
sixth show for each exhibitor and the state results will be used to break

9.     AWARDS:

Junior (1-4 grades), Intermediate (5-8 grades), and Senior (9-12 grades).

b.     The top ten exhibitors in each division will be presented a “TOP TEN
” award.  Points for all six shows will be used to determine ranking.

c.       “TOP TEN SHOWMANSHIP” awards will be presented in each division.

d.     The “TOP TEN OVERALL GGPP EXHIBITOR” will be presented to the
exhibitor with the highest composite total of individual goat points and
showmanship added together.

e.     SPONSORS to support the point system will be solicited and 100% of
those donated monies will be used to subsidize the funds available in the
point system.   The awards will be determined when the total dollars
supporting the GGPP is determined.
