This does fall at the beginning of TCYS, but passing along just in case.
Dear Sheep Producer/Exhibitor/Supporter:
The Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show in Kerrville, TX is EXCITED to announce that our District show will now be open to Junior breeding sheep exhibitors state-wide! What do we have to offer these youth?
· We show ALL breeds of registered sheep; classes include: Delaine, Dorper, Hampshire, Rambouillet, Southdown, Suffolk and Other Registered Breeds
· We show 6 age classes in each breed: lamb, two-tooth and aged in both ewes and rams.
· We pay guaranteed premium money to the top six places, regardless of entry number. And we often have extra add-on premium money as well!
· Breed champions receive an extra $ 150 premium (ram and ewe).

· The reserve supreme ewe receives an additional $ 500 premium.

· It is a quick show – check in on Tuesday, January 16 from 12 noon – 7 p.m., show on Wednesday, January 17 starting at 8 a.m. Exhibitors are released as soon as they finish showing. (this leaves plenty of time to get to the Ft Worth show)
