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:  http://www.peterboroughag.ca/the-ex/registration/.

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.
