Shows this summer & fall
While we can’t show at these two shows, it would be worthwhile to go and check it out. Plenty to learn, sheep breeders, exhibitors, vendors, youth to talk to etc…
July 3- July 5 – Big E Mallary Complex FREE
July 10-12 – New England Sheep & Wool Growers Association
The following shows are local and low pressure. Let Mrs. Melino know if you want to show a Mt. Everett animal or your own. Start by looking at the resources on this page and then we can set up times to work with your animal.
Berkshire Fair – Saturday August 15th – Pittsfield MA. Low pressure show, youth only, Sam Hoover showed last summer.
Sheffield Fair – Saturday, September 12th – Sheffield MA. FREE
