Now is the time to look for† & buy show lambs.† Market show lambs are a fun project for experienced & new students looking for a smaller livestock project.† The show season begins in the summer and finishes up at the State Market Lamb Show in October at the Georgia National Fair.† Market Lamb numbers have decreased in recent years, opening up room for new students & new projects.†
A great reference for students & teachers with first time lamb projects is the Georgia Club Lamb Producers Association (www.gclpa.com).
