There’s not a whole lot of difference between raising sheep in Turkey and at The Urban Farm at Stapleton. We raise them with lots of love and good food, shear them, we make the wool available for weavers and then we weave rugs! Ok. TUF isn’t weaving rugs . . . . . yet. . . .maybe someday . . . .But our good friend, Hamza from Istanbul, will be in town to help us raise some money for TUF!
Our market sheep and TUF youth, who are also members of the TUF 4-H club, will be competing in showmanship on Saturday January 19 at 4pm. The market sheep show will be on Sunday, January 20.
All of our Lincoln sheep will be shown during the Breeding show the last weekend of the Stock Show. Sunday, January 26 is the Wool Sheep Show and 10:00am is a good guess as to the time TUF will be showing.
TUF 4-H also has members competing in llamas and alpacas. They will start at 12:00pm on Saturday, January 12 for both alpacas and llamas and 2:00pm for llama performance. Alpaca performance is 2:00pm on Sunday January 13. As with any livestock show it can go later than the schedule, make sure to check the online schedule, which might be closer to actual times (but never guaranteed!).
Hope you can join us for these exciting events. Last year we won several awards.
