Small Animal Barn

Information

Guinea Pigs: are also known as cavies (ka--ve-z), and are known as such in the exhibition arena. Fur and Feather included information on cats, birds, rabbits, poultry, cavies, and mice, indicating that not just cats were popular as pets.
Poultry Show: Every bird will be taken out of the cage to be examined, so it helps if your bird is relaxed and can be handled by the judge. Cage training before the show can help to acclimate your birds to being handled. Most serious fanciers will keep their birds indoors in ‘penning sheds’, especially white feathered breeds to avoid sunlight, grass and mud. Keep male and female birds separately and make sure there is no bullying going on as a few feathers pecked out in the wrong place can spoil the perfect bird.
Rabbit Show: Every rabbit will be displayed and judged with its owner. Awards are according to breeds.
Showmanship: Each exhibitor will be judged on showmanship. This judging is only on the exhibitor, how well the animal is presented to the judge.

Horses

Information

A horse show is a judged exhibition of horse and riders. Some shows are categorized by breed or open to all. These events are judged on conformation (the shape or structure of an animal) of a horse as well as performance. Most shows consist of a series of different performances, called classes, wherein a group of horses with similar training or characteristics compete against one another for awards and, often, prize money.

Beef Breeding

Beef Breeding animals are used only for breeding stock. You will see many breeds of bulls, heifers and cows. Many are used locally for breeding purposes. Judges will discuss the pros and cons of the animal according to its breeding standards.
Stop by the show and learn some information on breed animals.
Friday February 26, 6:30pm or Saturday, February 27, 12:30pm for the Junior Beef Show.
