The Open Breeding Sheep Show consists of six different purebred breeds including Dorper, Hampshire, Rambouillet, Southdown, Suffolk, and White Dorper. Each of these breeds offer unique traits to the sheep industry. Exhibitors of all ages may bring ewes and rams for competition. The Open Breeding Goat Show is made up of Angora and Boer goats, both does and bucks. Angoras are known for their mohair and are judged on the quality of their mohair along with other physical characteristics. Boer goats have become popular for their added meat production compared to other breeds of goats. The age of goats that are exhibited range from kids to mature does and bucks. Many of the area’s top sheep and goat producers exhibit in San Antonio.
