2017 Changes to the Livestock Show Arena Schedule

Berrien County Youth Fair is taking a proactive approach to managing the Show Arena Schedule in the event that limitations/restrictions are suggested or mandated by outside officials related to a species amount of time/exposure species are on the fairgrounds during fair week.  Historically, the limitations have been related to health and wellness concerns for humans and/or animals.  Specifically, BCYF has had two instances in recent years where a species time on the grounds and/or exposure to the public has been in question or modified.

The Board of Directors of the Berrien County Youth Fair voted to change the judging schedule in the Livestock Show Arena for the 2017 BCYF.  The schedule will be as follows:

Monday:              Goat Judging (8:30 am start) – Showmanship, Special Needs, Boer Goats, Market Goats, Pygmy Goats

Monday:              Llama Judging (4:00 pm start) – Showmanship, Leaping, Limbo, Costume


Tuesday:              Beef Judging (8:30 am start)

Tuesday:              Goat Judging (4:00 pm start) – Pack & Cart, Dairy and other breeds Goats, Costume

Tuesday:              Sheep Judging (7:00 pm start) – Costume
