Trophy Sponsored by Ohio Valley Bank
These are the best of the best showman for this year’s fair. These showmen have the opportunity to battle it out in the ring for the coveted winning title.
Participants are grand champion showmanship winners in each species, if they accept the nomination. If they do not accept, it is then offered to the reserve showman. The exhibitors will try their hand at showing the other species and be scored by a panel of judges on everything including but not limited to animal treatment, knowledge, handling and how they conduct themselves in the ring.
High score will win and that showman will get to take home a trophy as tall as they are and the bragging rights of being number one Showman of the 2022 Meigs County Jr Fair.
