Market Goats will weigh with their sheep club.

There is a cost of $10 per member (not per lamb). Money will be collected by the club leaders.
You must have a completed Bill of Sale with your animal(s) at spring weigh-in. Download the Klamath County 4-H Sheep Division Bill of Sale here.
Please note: A bill of sale is required for all lambs and a health certificate with Oregon entry number is required for all out-of-state lambs. Each premise destination must be listed separately.
All lambs must have a scrapies tag from their flock of origin and that number must match the bill of sale and health papers.
Basic requirements for sheep and goats entering Oregon are:
1. a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) issued less than 30 days prior to entry, and
2. an import permit issued by this office, and
3. the statement on the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection: "These animals have no known exposure to scrapie." Scrapie Individual Identification or Premise Identification numbers need to be listed on certificate.

The purpose is to provide an interest-free loan to be used towards purchasing a market quality animal to raise as a project. Please visit the Rotary website for an application.
