Annual livestock show and sale nears

Staff Report
FFA and 4-H students recently “Walked the Town” soliciting support for the annual Churchill County Junior Livestock Show and Sale, which begins later this month.
Special to the LVN

The 2019 Churchill County Junior Livestock Show and Sale is April 25-27 at the Churchill County Fairgrounds.

Both the show and sale consist of swine, sheep, beef, goat, poultry and rabbit market animal classes, showmanship classes and all the breeding stock classes. During the show, judges grade students for their showmanship with overall winners in each livestock category announced on Saturday. The auction begins after potential buyers have the morning to look at the animals designated for sale.

This event allows the community’s youth to exhibit skills they have learned in their various projects such as project management, decision-making and project evaluation. Both the show and sale give the community the opportunity to encourage and reward these youth who are engaged in positive and productive efforts.

Support the 4-H and FFA youth by participating in various ways. The auction is Saturday, April 27 at 1 p.m. at the fairgrounds. The Churchill County Junior Livestock Show and Sale continues to be a success through the community’s support. If interested buyers are unable to attend the sale, they may designate someone as an agent to purchase on their behalf or the local 4-H office with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Sheckler Road can assist interested buyers as well with a pre-signed contract. A buyer’s appreciation dinner will occur later that evening.
