Barkley Wins Market Lamb Showmanship

Harrisburg, PA – Heidi Barkley, Manns Choice, Bedford Co. claimed top honors in the Market Lamb Showmanship contest. Emily Overs of DeGraff, Ohio, judged the competition.

“It is obvious to me that these showmen gave a tough run,” Overs commented. “Overall, I’m going to have to select our senior showman for Master title today. She accurately and quickly placed her feet and always gave adequate attention to not just the subject but also to me as the judge.”

Barkley, along with other Master Showmanship winners in each breed, will continue to the Overall Master Showmanship contest, where each will be judged on their showmanship abilities with different animals. Showmen must be prepared to show one animal of each livestock species to claim the title of “Master Showman.” Master Showman wins use of an EMM trailer for one year.
