Green County Fair – 2016 Updates

Goat Identification

  • Weigh-in date for both dairy and meat breed wethers is scheduled for April 23rd from Noon-1:00pm in Barn 7 at the Fairgrounds.
  • The weigh-in is for those interested in the Rate of Gain contest. Market wethers are NOT required to weigh in, unless the exhibitor wishes to participate in the Rate of Gain contest.  A reminder to look over the lots when filling out your fair entry forms, as classes need to be entered correctly.

All goats shown at the Green County Fair must be ID’d in one of two ways before they arrive at the Green County Fairgrounds.  If non-registered, they MUST carry a Scrapie tag.  SCRAPIE TAGS MUST CARRY YOUR FARM NUMBER, THEY CANNOT BE PROVIDED FOR YOU.  If registered and tattooed, please bring the original registration certificate and a copy to leave with the superintendent.  We are inspected and need to be in compliance.  If there are any questions, please contact Ron Gordee at 608-293-0580 or Naomi Gordee at 608-575-3239 or ngordee@gmail.com.
