COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- It happens around this time every year. That’s when the Lowndes County 4-H club holds its annual livestock show.
It is open to people from different counties and
Lowndes County Agriculture Agent Reid Nivens says the event is now bigger than ever.
“It’s grown every year; actually this is our biggest show since I’ve been here so in the last seven years. so we’re real excited, we had over 150 animals today come out and show; cattle, the sheep, the goats, the dairy goats, so it’s been a really good day,” said Nivens.
The event also brings out many competitors.
“I am competing in showing the dairy goats so we have different classes and I’m showing in some of them,” said Theodore Haffey.
Some club members compete in more than one event during the day.
Nivens says that the event today is a stepping stone to help get the children prepared for bigger stages.
They are also preparing the 4-h members for the fair in October as well.
