Results of the Northeast Youth Sheep Show

by Site Admin on August 6, 2016

Each July, the New England Sheep & Wool Growers Association hosts the Northeast Youth Sheep Show at the Big E Fairgrounds in West Springfield, Mass. This year’s 32nd annual show was held July 14-17th. As usual there was a nice turnout of Junior Lincoln breeders in both white and natural colored. Congratulations to Jakob Leary (MA) who won Champion Ram with his junior ram lamb and also won Champion Ewe with his Yearling Ewe. Terence Blake (MA) won Reserve Champion Ram with his yearling ram and Wyeth Joas (NH) won Reserve Champion Ewe with the second place yearling ewe. Terence Blake was also on the winning Quiz Bowl team. This is a well run show that gives Junior members of our organization more experience showing their animals, as well as the opportunity to participate in showmanship classes, skillathons and quiz bowls.
