LRP Show goats win big at the Sunflower elite Goat Showback in Great Bend Kansas.
On Oct. 15, youth show goat exhibitors from Kansas and Oklahoma made their way to Great Bend, Kan., to try their talents at the Sunflower Elite Jackpot Show hosted by the Barton County Fair Grounds. The Sunflower Elite is a group of breeders in Kansas who desire to promote the youth show goat industry. The Sunflower Elite comprises A5 Boers (Great Bend), Conine Livestock (Scott City), Dreamland Farms (Perry), Goodno Boer Goats (Kiowa) and LRP-Lindsey Pease Show Goats (Chetopa).

In addition to the added money, Maynard buckles were awarded to winners in each division of the market show, the grand and reserve grand champions of the wether and doe shows, and each division of showmanship.
