All nominations received by the June 1 deadline will be treated equally. A maximum of 80 goats is being sought for this year's test. If nominations exceed test capacity, previous consigners and Maryland residents will be favored. In the past, voluntary reductions in consignments have reduced numbers sufficiently.
It is not necessary to nominate specific goats to the test. Only the number of goats is needed at the time of nomination. Consigners who consign five goats to the test and enter a goat in the carcass contest will receive a $20 per head discount for test goats.

Spring has been very dry in Western Maryland. Consequently, the sheep have not been brought for grazing (yet).
