Important reminder - If you are a Lincoln or East Adams 4-H member or leader and you are reading this on July 15th - midnight tonight is the final deadline for 4-H enrollment and project changes in the 4hOnline system for this 4-H year.

Market Goat Showmanship (Part II)
by Randy Williams,
Lincoln/East Adams 4-H Program Coordinator
Bracing To prepare to be competitive in any situation, goats should be taught to brace. Some shows, by rule, may not allow bracing. Certain judges may or may not allow showmen to brace their animals. If a show has no rules against the practice and a judge allows showmen to present their animals on a brace, do not be surprised to see the animals that are braced stand at the top of the class. Therefore, showmen should train goats both to brace and stand in place so they will be able to show their animal either way depending on show rules and how the judge allows them to show.
