Kentucky Youth Livestock Shows Underway

     This is the first full week of June and the Kentucky youth livestock show season is well underway! The second of eight district goat shows sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture was Monday, and on Saturday the Kentucky Colonel District Lamb Show was held in Georgetown and the Rough River District Swine Show was held in Hardinsburg.
    It's a very busy time of the year for all 4-H and FFA members as they work at home feeding, grooming, and training the animals to lead and then traveling to district shows, county fairs, and the junior livestock expos with their families. Dates, rules, and information about all district shows sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture can be found at the following link: http://www.kyagr.com/marketing/fair/index.htm
    Below you will find photographs of winners of a few of the shows. I will update as soon as I receive more information and photographs. If you have results or photographs of  district or county fair show results, email at quiggins@scrtc.com
