Show Information and Rules
Participants must reside in Gaston, Lincoln, Catawba, Alexander, Wilkes, Alleghany counties, and all North Carolina counties to their west. The annual fee for participation is due June 15th ($15.00 if received by June 15; $30 after June 15th). Participants must register before July 15.
Age divisions are based on the exhibitor’s age on January 1st
Lamb and Market Goat
Junior: 8 and under
Intermediate: 9-13 years of age
Senior: 14-18 years of age
By competing in 3 of 5 sanctioned shows participants will become eligible for awards.
By competing in 4 of 8 sanctioned shows participants will become eligible for awards
A participant may elect to move up to the next age division (example: Joe is 13 but would like to show as a senior).
To move up into an older age group, the participant must notify Wayne Mitchem in writing before the first show, (including circuit champions). Once a participant is placed into an older age division, he or she must show in that division at all circuit shows that he or she attends that year (no exceptions). Participant may only move up one age division (i.e. a junior cannot show as a senior).
The scoring system is based on an accumulation of points. Points in each age division from each show will be as follows:
- Showpersons in each age division will receive points as follows:
- 1st – 15 points
- 2nd – 13 points
- 3rd – 11 points
- 4th – 9 points
- 5th – 7 points
- 6 Points will be given to any child that makes finals in a show that has enough entries to warrant go-rounds.
- All others – 5 points
- An individual’s top 3 scores for the lamb and goat circuit; top 4 scores for the heifer circuit will count toward year end awards
A tie between 2 participants will be broken using the following criteria:
- Head to head competition.
- All the dropped scores will be added.
If there is still a tie after these two means are used to separate the participants, multiple awards will be given
A participant can win the Grand Champion buckle once in each age division for each species however a participant may win twice in the senior age division. If a senior participant wins twice they are no longer eligible to participate in the circuit.
Reserve Champion awards may be won more than once in each age division with no restrictions.
If a Circuit participant or any member of their immediate family is barred from competition at any of the sanctioned events, for any reason, that participant shall be ineligible for any and all Circuit awards in the current year.
The circuit committee will work with sanctioned show officials to avoid any circuit participant from having show under the same judge more than once (per species), however the committee cannot guarantee that will not occur.
If there are discrepancies between Circuit rules and rules of a specific show, the rules for that show take precedence over the Circuit rules. READ the rules for each show you plan participate.
ALL participants in the GOAT circuit will need to show the animal as if it were being shown as a market animal even if it is a female goat.
