Polk County will see a new type of livestock show this weekend as the Central States Pygmy Goat Club holds a show at the Polk County Fairgrounds. This will be the first time the county has had such a show and organizers are excited to bring it to the area.
The Walk on the Wild side NPGA Sanctioned Pygmy Goat Show will begin at 9 a.m. at the Fairgrounds with Showmanship, Wether, Doe, and Buck competition. Denise Fraser will judge the 1st Show. The 2nd Show will follow with Wether, Doe, and Buck and will be judged by Jill Conklin.
This is the first time this type of event has been held in Arkansas. The Central States Pygmy Goat Club was launched last fall and they usually attend shows in Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Texas and are excited to host one in Mena. Although this show will include only adults showing, other venues also include kids.
With the theme of Walk on the Wild Side, club member Teresa Clark said some of the animals and people will be dressed up. For more information, contact Rick Clark at 479-234-6766. “We encouraged everyone to come. It’s a free event and it will be fun,” said Clark.
