All Market Lambs and Wether Dams entered in the San Angelo Stock Show MUST have a valid TLBA (Texas Lamb Breeders' Association) tag in its ear and recorded on Texas Livestock Validation paperwork.
Below is an Excel spreadsheet provided by the Texas Sheep and Goat Validation office for exhibitors to verify their animals are eligible to show in San Angelo. Please carefully review the spreadsheet- organized first by county the animals were validated in (even if you are an FFA member, it is by county) and then last, first name of exhibitor.
If there is only a "/" in the TLBA field, the validation office does NOT have record of a TLBA number for that corresponding validation tag number, and therefore, that animal is INELIGIBLE to show in San Angelo.
The validation tag in the lambs ear will only contain the last 5 digits of the Validation Tag number listed on the spreadsheet. Additionally the first five digits ahead of the "/" in the validation number column is the tag number. TLBA tags vary in the number of digits.
