Market Lamb

2004 Briggsdale Classic
Open Jackpot Show

33 exhibitors brought 54 lambs to compete in last year’s Briggsdale Classic Open Jackpot Market Lamb Show.

During weigh-in exhibitors were asked to take a general meat quality assurance quiz. Gift certificates from this year’s sponsors were also given to the high point quiz taker.

Showmanship began immediately following weigh-in and started off with the Senior, Intermediate, Junior and PeeWee classes.

The first three age brackets were competing for the Harlene Allmer Memorial belt buckles and for embroidered garment bags.

The PeeWee division was competing for embroidered duffel & garment bag.

What makes the Briggsdale Classic unique is that this is the only show where kids 8 and under can bring their market lambs to compete in the ring.

The Main goal of the Briggsdale Classic is to inspire these young people to participate in the livestock industry and lead us into tomorrow.

The market lamb judge was Mr. Cory Gilbert, CSU student majoring in Animal Science and a member of the NJC judging team.

The show ran relatively fast and the jackpot show that began at 7am weigh-in was over at Noon. The market lamb numbers were up by 20 from last year and the committee hopes to keep that trend going.

The Briggsdale Classic Committee would like to thank everyone who participated and supported the market lamb portion of our show and would hope to see them again next year!
