Join Us for A Dairy Good Time!
Enjoy a stock show and see steers, lambs, hogs and dairy cows. 4H and Future Farmers of America participants will show off their livestock projects to the judges. There will be three weight classes per species. First place in each class will compete for overall and reserve champion. These young farmers will also compete for Junior and Senior Showmanship winner.
