**CJLA UPDATE FOR 2018! CJLA will be adding a Wether Dam Ewe Division next year! We had great response to adding the Wether Dam Doe Division in 2017 and we have had many requests to add the Wether Dam Ewe Division. We were able to get more than the required 8 Shows to confirm that they will add it to their event, so here it is! More information and rules are included in the 2018 Rule Book, posted on the website, and eblasted out to everyone. Please note that if you want to join the Wether Dam Doe Division and/or the Wether Dam Ewe Division, you must pay the additional fee for those divisions as they are separate from the Mkt. Goat or Mkt. Lamb Divisions. Questions? Contact us!
