A lamb shown by Katie Nadler, Augusta, was named the grand champion at the Washington Town and Country Fair market lamb show Wednesday.

The reserve champion lamb was shown by Braun Lebish, Krakow.

Adam Gaston, Vandalia, who judged the market lamb show and sheep breeding competition, said he was impressed by the group of showmen and stock at the competition.

“There were nice quality, lambs at the top of these classes,” he said.

There were 14 lambs in the show and 14 blue ribbons awarded. The livestock auction will be held Saturday.

Showmanship awards were given to Lydia Placht, junior, of New Haven; and Janna Ruether, senior, of Beaufort.

“The exhibitors did a good job working the lambs in these very hot conditions,” added Gaston.
