Subject: State Market Lamb and Goat Show information - Entry Deadline
August 1.

*The entry deadline for the state Market Lamb and Goat Shows is August 1*.

Orders for tags and entries are done by the Agent for 4-H and by the
teacher for FFA, not by the exhibitor.

*You will need ear tags before you can enter.*  If you do not have ear
tags, agents or teachers should order now with this form:

*http://georgiaffa.org/docs/74860_2016-2017%20Tag%20Order%20Form.pdf
<http://georgiaffa.org/docs/74860_2016-2017%20Tag%20Order%20Form.pdf>*

Please note that in addition to a state ear tag, sheep and goats also need
a "scrapie tag" which is provided by the breeder.

Also note that when you sign the entry form you are certifying that those
animals were in the possession of the exhibitor and tagged before the entry
deadline.

*The rule book is posted* on the FFA site.   As of today, State Health
Regulations have not been updated.  Lamb and Goat show rules have been
updated .
