The Briggsdale Classic is now in its 10th successful year thanks to the incredible support of participants, volunteers, sponsors and the local 4H and FFA chapters.
Founded in 2003 by Brian Allmer, Donald Johnston and Larry Rodenburg, the community event is held in honor of Brian's sister, Harlene Fiscus. Funds raised benefit the Briggsdale Washington Focus program of 4H and the Briggsdale FFA chapter.
The Classic continues to evolve based on input from participants. 2004 saw the show grow to two days with the addition of beef classes. 2005 saw the addition of a junior beef "Bucket Calf" show for children under eight years of age.
The Classic has some features you won't find at many other shows. There are Pee Wee classes for children too young for 4H. The beef show is a 'no clip' show with a portion of the score coming from ultrasound testing performed by technicians from CSU. Participants are also given a written quality assurance quiz to test their understanding of issues involved in raising food animals.
More than 400 people attended the show in 2004. Goat entries continue to lead in numbers, but another strong showing is expected for beef and lambs in 2008.
Is there something else you'd like to see at the Classic? Something we can do to make it better for participants, parents or spectators? Let us know — we'd love to hear from you.
We hope to see you in Briggsdale this summer!
From the 2007 Market Goat & Lamb Judge:
My name is Devin Murnin and I am from Miles City, Montana. I grew up on a ranch and have been evaluating livestock far as long as I can remember. I judged and showed all species of livestock through 4-H and FFA. I was on the livestock judging team at Northeastern Junior College and am currently on the team at Colorado State University. A few of my highlights this year include second high individual in sheep at the National Western Stock Show and high individual in goats at the San Antonio Stock Show. I believe showing livestock is a great experience for the youth and would strongly encourage anyone to compete in Livestock Judging and Showing.
