4-H Livestock Show scheduled for Friday

Sep. 10, 2013 @ 09:52 AM


The 2013 Four County 4-H Livestock Show will be held Friday at the Granville County Expo Center.

Youth from Vance, Warren, Granville and Franklin counties will participate in the show. They will exhibit sheep, goats and cattle.

There will be a formal showmanship section, along with less formal sections such as a costume class, where participants dress themselves and their animals.

The event is a way to help youth gain knowledge and experience with their animals while developing traits such as responsibility, entrepreneurship, leadership, communication skills, respect and patience.

The event is open to the public.

For more information on the show contact Morris White, director of Vance County Cooperative Extension, at (252) 438-8188 or morris_white@ncsu.edu.
