The First Year Exhibitor Market Lamb Show was held on October 8, 2016 in Perry, Georgia and Rachel Hayes exhibited the Reserve Champion lamb after winning her lamb's respective weight class. Additionally, Rachel presented a ewe that placed 2nd in the natural class and she also placed 2nd in class with a black-face wether.

The Georgia Junior National Market Lamb Show is composed of weight classes for each classified breed. Division winners compete for the overall top 5 honors. Furthermore, students participate in showmanship in their designated grade. 4-H and FFA exhibitors in 1st grade through 12th grade from across Georgia participate in the event. Dr. Billy Zanolini from Texas A&M University judged the market lamb show, 1st year exhibitor show, and showmanship.

As a result of participation in the Georgia youth livestock program, students gain character traits including responsibility, caring and fairness among others, and certainly the reward of hard-work and dedication. In addition, they practice numerous life skills including teamwork, self-motivation, self-esteem, critical thinking, decision making, goal setting, cooperation, and communication.
