IBGC Summer Show Series

The Summer Show Series is designed to encourage the exhibition, marketing and promotion of Boer and Meat Goats in and around the State of Indiana.  Any show chosen to host a Summer Show Series Event must be open to all IBGC members and to all members of the National Sponsoring Registry. 

Members or local organizations wishing to host a Summer Show Series show for the following year may complete this packet and submit the information to the IBGC Show Secretary by June 30th the year prior. These dates and locations will be presented to the membership at the Annual Meeting held at the Indiana State Fair and the members in attendance will be solicited for input and opinions about the locations, which will be forwarded to the Show Committee.

IBGC Summer Show Series Rules
  1. Entries must be submitted electronically at on or before 5:00 PM on the designated entry deadline. Fees double for entries accepted after the posted deadline. Late entries will be accepted online until 6 pm the Wednesday before the show, and at check-in.

  2. All shows are governed by the rules of the IBGC and the sanctioning Breed Association. IBGC rules have priority for the Youth Show. For incidents not covered by show rules, the IBGC Show Committee’s decision will be final.

  3. Original Registration papers are required for all breeding stock animals from any Boer registry accepted by the ABGA for the Open Show. Animals must be shown under the owner’s name. Acceptable registrations for Youth Pay-outs include: in the Youth's name (i.e. Johnny Smith, or Johnny Smith and Janie Smith) in a family name (i.e. John and Mary Smith and family) or in a farm name (i.e. Smith Farms.)

  4. Youth Exhibitors will accumulate points in the Youth Challenge Series in three categories: Market Goats, Breeding Does (only top 3 goats will count towards overall total for Market Goats and Breeding Does) and Showmanship. Exhibitors are not limited to showing only 3 goats per show, but points will only be accumulated from the three highest point accumulating goats per category. Goats may only be shown in only one market class and one showmanship class and may only be shown by one IBGC exhibitor per sanctioned show.

  5. Papers are not required for market or showmanship animals.

  6. Youth exhibitors must be members or part of a family membership and may join at any show. Points accumulate from that show forward.

  7. All goats must be in place and papers checked in to the show secretary by designated check in time the day of the show.

  8. Goats must be Healthy and free of visible signs of contagious diseases. Animals of questionable health may be excused.

  9. All goats must comply with Indiana BOAH and Scrapie rules. Out of state goats must follow any rules for transport set by the state of Indiana.

  10. All goats must be tagged or have some other permanent form of ID.

  11. Dehorning/tipping of Wethers and Market Does is recommended but not required. Market goats shall be body-clipped to a uniform length not exceeding 1/2" above the hocks and knees.

  12. Wethers must be castrated males. Wethers with remnants of testicles will be disqualified.

  13. Wethers and Market does must have all their milk teeth in place. Wethers and Market Does with missing teeth or permanent adult teeth coming in will be disqualified. (No refunds.)

  14. IBGC reserves the right to conduct weigh-backs of wethers and market does. Animals gaining more than 5 lbs from entry weight will be disqualified, forfeit that show’s premiums, and all earned points.

  15. IBGC reserves the right to conduct random drug/tissue tests. The exhibitor of any goat found with illegal drug residue will be banned from the show series.

  16. No alcoholic beverages on the fairgrounds. No smoking inside any barns. No dogs allowed in barns or show arena.

  17. Exhibitors and their families are responsible for safety and care of their goats, and release the IBGC and any committee members from any and all responsibility for loss or damages or accidents, and waive any and all claims resulting from any weigh-back or random drug/tissue test results.

  18. IBGC reserves the right to refuse any exhibitor entry and to ask any person whose behavior is deemed detrimental to leave immediately.

  19. Youth must show their own animals in the Junior Show unless they have 2 in the same class.

  20. No Showing from Trailers. No Refunds.

EVERY YOUTH EXHIBITOR at EVERY Summer Show Series Show (Flora, Brownstown, Hamlet and Bloomington) AND the Fall Classic will be entered in to a drawing to WIN a Straw of Semen from 2M Boer Goats, plus Lap AI @ 2M. (Each show is a separate drawing, so you have FIVE chances to WIN!)
