I need to know if anyone has done pack goat shows with their 4-H groups at fair and had it be official. Below is part of what the new livestock manager emailed me. I am really frustrated because the last manager said we would be official this year and now we are doing demos again. I even had lots of adults wanting to compete in the fair this year too. Any advice for doing something for the kids and adults that I can present to her also?

" To make new divisions and classes to the fair, I must have a written statement from someone that I can look over it and look more into it. All decisions must be brought to a committee and then to the fair board. "

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone have a set score sheet they use for packgoat judging? We have had problems with inconsistent judging and I think some of the 4H leaders want to try and introduce standardized scoring, at least localy.

Thanks for this! Sorry it has been soooo long on the reply, I keep having computer problems. I will take this to our livestock manager and see if this is what she is looking for, it sounds like it to me.
