Virginia Cooperative Extension, with the assistance of the Franklin County 4-H Adventure Farm Livestock Club and numerous sponsors, is proud to offer an Open Youth Livestock show in 2014 for youth ages 5 to 19. The objective is to offer a successful show while providing club members and outside youth with a meaningful learning experience. The club has opened the show to surrounding counties to enhance the show and provide an opportunity for regional interaction.
The show will be held Friday, August 8 through Saturday, August 9, at the Franklin County Parks and Recreation on Sontag Road in Rocky Mount, Virginia. Youth will have the opportunity to show dairy and beef heifers and steers, sheep, and goats. Children ages 5 to 8 will be allowed to show in the Cloverbud age show, but must be accompanied in the ring by an adult.
If you need any assistance or have questions, contact Cynthia Martel at the Virginia Cooperative Extension-Franklin County Office at 540-483-5161. Please encourage friends and family to attend the show and youth to participate. This show is open to all youth regardless of enrollment in 4-H or FFA. This is an opportunity to get youth to show animals and see the benefit of joining a local 4-H Livestock Club or FFA Chapter.
