County Fair: Aug 3-10, 2024

Sheep

Shear-ious Stuff

Showing sheep at the fair is a long-standing tradition throughout Michigan. It is a challenging and rewarding experience that teaches young people valuable life skills. Join us this August for sheep showmanship, the breeding sheep show, and the market lamb auction!

Thank you all for coming out and making Tag In last Saturday smooth! We tagged in 85 Market Lambs!!! If you didn't notice the sheep/hog barn has been demolished. We will have a NEW barn built prior to fair!!! We are still looking for pen sponsor and/or donations to complete the sheep pens. If you are interested in sponsoring a sheep pen or if you are able to donate anything towards the pens, please reach out to Jodi Robeck (231) 245-5290. In order to have adequate space we need to get those pens funded now so that they can be built prior to fair. This will be another exciting year that we are looking forward to!! ... See MoreSee Less
