Raising and Showing Market Wethers

 by Sarah Helms

Sarah Helms is 18 years old and has been involved with 4H since she was 9 years old. Her first livestock project was Market Lambs.  Then in 2000 her Fair (Kern County Fair) had its first Market Goat show. She got a couple of wethers and jumped in just to see what it was all about.  She found out she loved feeding and showing goats.

Sarah began jackpotting in junior goat shows and in  (2003) Sarah was the state Champion Senior Goat Showman (17 to 21 years old) and Reserve Champion Overall in goat  placement points.

In the last 4 years since she has been showing goats Sarah has attended over 30 shows carrying from 2 to 6 goats at a time (depending on the time in the season) to each show. So her show ring experience is extensive. During that time she has had 3 Supreme Champions, 5 Grand Champions, 9 Division Champions and numerous weight class winners

Sarah says that the love of what you are doing, lots of hard work and access to a goat herd that consistently offers you quality wethers is a winning combination.

Looking back to where she first started and realizing the things she has learned, she wants to pass on some of those things to others who may be at the point she was when she first started.  Click to read her article, Raising and Showing Market Wethers.
