Tennessee Sheep Producers Association (TSPA) is pleased to announce the 2022 Fleece Show will be held at Sheep Expo. Sheep exhibitors are encouraged to save their best fleece from the spring shear to enter in the contest. Prizes will be awarded for the Grand and Reserve Fleeces. Fleeces will be accepted prior to the breeding sheep show on October 21, 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Fleece must be from a ewe owned by the exhibitor.
Maximum of two fleeces per exhibitor.
Fleeces will be entered by registered breed, and classes for cross bred ewes. Each class must have at least three fleeces entered to be a separate class. Those breed classes with less than three fleeces will be entered in all other breeds. Prizes for grand and reserve fleeces will be awarded.
Fleeces should be tied with cotton or wool cord and placed in a clear plastic bag. No plastic feed sacks and do not tie with baling twine.
