The district 3 regional show was held in Novi, Mi over the Labor Day holiday weekend. We had a total of 26 head in the Jr. show with 32 head in the open show. In the Jr. show, Caitlin Plank won champion ram and ewe in the natural colored division and Katie Hacker and Ethan Plank winning champion ram and ewe respectfully in the white division. The open show champions were a little different with Penny Swearingen winning the champion ram and Katie Hacker winning the champion ewe in natural colored division. The white open show champions were Ethan Plank winning both champion ram and ewe. The champions in each divisions were awarded certificates from donated sponsors. I would like to thank the sponsors which were the following: Banner Sales Management, Ketcham Sheep Equipment, and Mid-states Wool Growers. It should also be noted that Penny Swearingen won the champion over all fleece show with a natural colored fleece.
