  • DNA Testing/EID Ear Tags - If an animal loses an ear tag, the exhibitor needs to contact their Extension agent and have the tag replaced, then let KSU know the new tag number. This will need to be done prior to the show. There will be a $100.00 fee to collect DNA at the show if a tag is missing.
  • WEIGHT: Meat goats must weigh a minimum of sixty pounds and can be any breed or combination of goat breeds. No maximum weight. Wethers or does may be shown.
  • Exhibitors will turn in the official show weight of their market meat goat. Market Meat Goats will not be allowed to re-weigh once they have checked in.
  • A 4-H or FFA exhibitor may show a maximum of three market goats at this show. If entries exceed pens available exhibitors will be contacted to bring fewer animals.
  • Goats must be shown with all four feet on the ground. Exhibitors may use a collar, a collar with a short lead, or a halter when showing. Medium (3mm or smaller) pinch collars will be allowed.
  • TEETH: All meat goats must have baby teeth in place with no visible signs of permanent teeth. The decision of the mouthier is final.
  • SHEARING: At the time of health check-in, all meat goats must be "slick shorn" with uniform hair length not to exceed 3/8" inch from the knee and hock joints up before arrival on the grounds, head and belly excluded. There will be no shearing of meat goats allowed on any part of the grounds. Touch-up clipping with scissors, hand shears or cordless clippers is allowed. No blocking/trim tables for meat goats are permitted anywhere on the grounds. Violation will result in disqualification of animal.
  • HORNS: Wethers are suggested to arrive without horns. If horned, the horns must be tipped and rounded (not less than the diameter of a dime at the end). Tipping and removal of horns is not allowed on the grounds and will result in disqualification.
  • FITTING: Artificial coloring, paint or powder will not be permitted for use on meat goats during the entire show.
  • Physical abuse of any animal will not be tolerated and will be grounds for disqualification. Show superintendent has the right to interpret this rule.
  • Market goats will be shown by weights in weight divisions.
