4-H Sheep Showmanship clinic planned
A sheep showmanship clinic will be held on July 8 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Washington County Fairgrounds. This event is open to any youth who want to learn more about and make improvements in their sheep showing skills. Topics to be covered will include proper handling of lambs, daily care, washing and health issues. Pete Dempsey, visiting FFA instructor and nationally known judge from Oklahoma, will lead the workshop. A fee will be collected that day to participate. Bring sheep sheared and ready to practice and apply his suggestions in the ring. Contact the Washington County 4-H sheep superintendent Ted Greiner for more information at 641-660-6839.
