4-H Goat Show was
recently held at the
Sheboygan County
Fair Park in the
Coliseum.
The Coliseum
was filled with a
variety of goats,
handlers, parents and
visitors all of which
were interested in the
care and showing of
the goats.
Judge Jennifer
Vance from Elkhorn
had the difficult job
of deciding where
each animal was to
be placed.
Judge Vance
placed the animals

according to a mental scorecard which is
always used for this type of event.
The techniques of judging are based
on careful observation, thoughtful

evaluation and intelligent decision making. These
skills are learned by becoming familiar with the
characteristics of an animal that lead to a long,
healthy and productive life.
The judge also must have a clear mental picture
of the ideal animal in order to make accurate
comparisons of the animals in the ring.
The judge needs to analyze the goats in the ring
and then use these four points to evaluate them.
1. Observe and analyze the goats.
2. Evaluate the amount of difference between
the animals.
3. Decide the placing, based on practical
importance.
4. Describe in clear, concise reasons why the
placing is made.
Some of the specific points, of practical
importance, which a judge scores the goats are on
general appearance, dairy character, body capacity
and the mammary system.
It was a fun day, but the best part is finding out
how their entry fares next to the rest of that category.
