New Award Opportunity at the 2015 National Junior Suffolk Show!
Thank you Tad & Amanda Thompson!

Silver Dollar Stewardship Award

Award: One pregnant recipient ewe carrying a confirmed pregnancy of 45 days or older by Silver Dollar 1335

Sponsor: Tad & Amanda Thompson, Silver Dollar Farm

1. Stewardship definition: the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care (Merriam/Webster Dictionary)

2. Motivation for sponsorship: As a youth showing Suffolk sheep we were not able to produce nationally competitive sheep. However, the one factor that I was always able to control was how well I cared for my animals, how well they were prepared for a show, how I conducted myself in public or around my peers, and how well I could present them in the show ring. My goal for this award is to give a Suffolk youth the opportunity to be rewarded for hard work, dedication to the project, and recognition of the example we all set to those around us.

3. The winner of the Silver Dollar Stewardship Award will receive one pregnant recipient ewe carrying a confirmed pregnancy of 45 days or older by Silver Dollar 1335. The winner is responsible for the care and management of this recipient ewe and returning her to Reproduction Specialty Group once the lamb is weaned. The pregnancy belongs to the winner.

           
Silver Dollar 1335 is the 2014 Reserve National Champion Suffolk ewe in the NAILE open show & the NAILE Jr Fitted Suffolk Show. Her full ET sister sold for $10,000 at the 2012 Ohio Suffolk Sale. This ewe family is one of the foundations of our flock. This is an opportunity for one of the outstanding youth of the greatest purebred sheep bred in the country to advance their flock for years to come.

4. Criteria for contest:

           

a. 40 Point to be awarded based on Showmanship
(including: presenting animal for exhibit, willingness to help others in and out of the ring & good sportsmanship in and out of the ring)

b. 30 points to be awarded for Pen Preparation
(aisle & pen presentation: cleanliness and welcoming others to learn about Suffolks)

c. 15 points to be awarded for Show Readiness
(cleanliness of the animals, not quality of the fit job but attempt to present the animal in the best way possible)

d. 10 points to be awarded for Animal Welfare
(water, bedding, general daily care of the animals)

e. 5 points to be awarded for proper show attire

 

5. Panel of 3 to select the youth.

           

a. Suffolk Junior Suffolk Show judge

b. National Junior coordinator
