Howard County 4-H members Peyton Bagley and Katherine Chambers work at the Howard County Fairgrounds in preparation of the fair livestock shows.

Most youth would not be excited to be up bright and early on a Saturday morning cleaning livestock stalls, weed eating, mowing and dumping shavings but a group of Howard County youth did just that this past Saturday morning.  

They were happily preparing the Howard County Fairgrounds for the upcoming Howard County Livestock Show.  

The Livestock Show will be held on September 7 through September 11.  It will be concluded with the Livestock Premium Sale on Friday morning at 9:00 a.m.

This year is an exceptional year, not only because of Covid 19 and all the restrictions, but because of how hard our youth have worked on their livestock projects.  

This year our numbers are up not only by number of exhibitors showing animals but by the number of animals being exhibited.
