Livestock Exhibits

The exhibition of Livestock gives Fair patrons the opportunity to explore farm animals up-close in an effort to educate the public on one of the many facets that make up our agricultural industry. These livestock events help to create the next generation of men and women in agriculture and by participating in these events, 4-H, FFA and Independent students not only have the opportunity to showcase and sell their animal projects, they also learn responsibility and gain agribusiness experience.
