The Reserve Champion Lamb was raised by Ashley Hardy of Farmington. The successful bidder was Calrae Farms.

The Honorable Mention Lamb was raised by Sarah Richards of Hermon and the successful bidder was Tiltons Auction of Corinth. The top price received was $2.00per pound with an average price of $1.75 per pound.

Larve Fagey, Treasurer of the Central Maine Sheep Breeders Association presented premium checks for the Grand Champion Lamb ($30), Reserve Champion Lamb ($20) and Honorable Mention Lamb($10).

Cody Coutts won the Senior Fitting Award and Senior Showmanship Award.

Collen Schofield won the Junior Fitting Award and Junior Showmanship Award.

The Challenge Course was won by Ashleie Hardy with Sarah Richards second and Cody Coutts coming in third.
