Animal Exhibit Workshop July 9

By Staff | Jun 30, 2015

Palo Alto County 4-H and FFA animal exhibitors are invited to the Palo Alto County Fairgrounds in Emmetsburg on Thursday, July 9, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to learn about getting livestock exhibits ready for the fair. Several local “experts” will present and show youth tips about animal selection, nutrition, and actual preparation of their animals for the fair. Lessons on grooming animals for the show ring and what to bring to the county fair will be provided. Animal species covered will be beef, sheep, meat goats, swine, rabbits, horses, and dogs. Sessions will be informal in order that exhibitors may ask questions.

Parents of exhibitors are also welcomed and encouraged to attend and learn as well. There will be a small registration fee for participation in the event. Interested youth are asked to pre-register by contacting the Palo Alto County Extension Office at 712-852-2865 by July 2.
