Junior Livestock still all about the kids


Staff reports

The Caldwell County Junior Livestock Show set for March 2-4 at the Fair Associations’ facilities

will once again highlight the youngsters by getting them involved with the Little Showman project as well as the always fun Little Wrangler Hay Hauling and Pig Scramble contests.

The Little Showman Project, which began last year, allows Pre-K thru Second Graders to gain experience for future Livestock Shows as a mentor helps them show animals in the ring. They also answer questions from judges.

The Little Wrangler Hay Hauling is for kids ages 3-5. They choose a partner and together pull a wagon to pick up small bales of hays in a timed event.

The Pig Scramble is for grades K thru Second. The kids race to remove a ribbon from the tail of baby pigs, then race to the finish line in a timed event.

In each of the events, entry forms are available at the show.
