Club Lamb Show & Sale
The Club Lamb Show & Sale is where club lambs weighing between 45 and 100 pounds are judged and compete for placings based on meat and muscle quality through a live animal evaluation. These same lambs are then auctioned off according to their placings. Lambs are perfect for 4-H/FFA projects or ones that people are interested in feeding out either for replacement lambs or for the freezer.
