Peterborough MOE Show

The 2nd MOE show of the season, will be held on Thursday, August 9, 2018 at the Peterborough Exhibition. The ECOHZ is very pleased to host this MOE show.  The deadline to register is also quickly approaching, Monday, August 6, 2018.  Pre-registration is required, as this beef show is very popular and well attended.  To register, visit the Peterborough Exhibition site:

Reminders for participants, there are a few MOE show rules that we must follow:

  • Stall Cards must be displayed for all animals, with EPDs, if available.  The show committee is asking for these to be hung by 9AM
  • All animals must be tattooed and the tattoos must be legible. All tattoos will be checked, and it makes our job much easier if the ears are clean
  • Red shirts must be worn in the ring, no exceptions.  A limited number of extra red shirts are available if yours happens to left behind.

Please contact Karen Paszternak, for more information.
