Entries: pre entry fee for sheep $30, for cows $35.
Day of trial entry fee sheep $35, cows $40.
The owner of the sheep will only allow each group to run 2 times. As a result more sheep are needed which means a higher than normal sheep entry fee. Entries are limited (16 sheep, 20 cows) so get your entries in early. Entries open April 1. None accepted with a post mark before that date.
