I am showing a dairy wether at Fair this year but am unsure how to clip him. Is it like market and meat goat wethers? This is my first time showing goats and I can't find anything on how to clip a wether for dairy classes. Thanks!

Where I have shown in MD and where I lived in Oklahoma, a dairy wether would only be eligible for the 4-H Market Goat classes, and would be clipped like a market goat. Things can vary region-by-region, though. Does your county 4-H program not offer training and practice classes on how to show? Generally they are offered months before the fair, so kids have time to practice at home. You usually bring your 4-H project animals with you to the classes.
