Idaho's Treasure Valley Classic adds meat goats

The Treasure Valley Classic announces the addition of a Meat Goat Show to its junior livestock show format. This youth event, which is being carried out in cooperation with the Snake River Meat Goat Association, is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th, at the Owyhee County Fairgrounds in Homedale, Idaho.

4-H and FFA youth who own market wethers and/or percentage, purebred or fullblood Boer doelings and does are encouraged to enter.

Market goats will be weighed from 9 to 10 a.m. on show day, to determine class breaks. The show begins at 11 a.m. with the market portion followed by breeding stock and showmanship. Youth who have exhibited in two or fewer meat goat shows are eligible for the novice showmanship class.

A question and answer session will wrap up this show, designed to be a learning event for exhibitors and parents alike.

Exhibitors are required to bring their own bedding and clean stalls before departure. Food will be available on-site.

Early-bird entry fee is $15 per head if postmarked by April 30th. After that, entries are $25 per head and will be taken up to 9 a.m. show morning. Entries are available on the Snake River Meat Goat Association website:, click on "Upcoming Shows and Events."
