 The State Fair of Texas is requiring validation for registered breeding sheep, registered breeding goats, wether/commercial dams, and wether/commercial does.

The Texas Lamb and Goat Validation of Texas is pleased to announce the introduction of the Roll-over Breeding Sheep and Breeding Goat program.

 Who does this impact? Registered breeding sheep, registered breeding goats, wether/commercial dams, and wether/commercial does ONLY

Who does this NOT impact? Market lambs and market goats

What does this mean? Beginning June 1, 2021, registered breeding sheep, registered breeding goats, wether/commercial dams, and wether/commercial does will have 3 total years of eligibility UNLESS A CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP TAKES PLACE. This will be offered during major show validation as well. Put plainly- if you validate for State Fair during the June 2021 validation period, your validation will be eligible until June 2024, unless a change of ownership occurs during that time- then you must re-validate. If you validate during the October 2021 validation period for major shows, your validation will be eligible until October 2024, unless a change of ownership occurs during that time- then you must re-validate.

 More information regarding the Roll-Over Breeding Sheep and Breeding Goat program will be released soon.

 THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO MARKET LAMBS AND GOATS!!!

 Market lambs and market goats validated for the State Fair of Texas MUST RE-VALIDATE for Major Shows in October! This has NOT changed!
