Watch PRT’s Francesca Claverie interview local students with their animals!
The first day of the show, to be held September 14, will have youth showing beef, market goats, and sheep. Showmanship classes will also be held on that day for those animals. Swine and swine showmanship classes will take place on September 15. There will be no classes for poultry or small stock this year. Livestock Committee Chairman Dean Fish anticipates that there will be 55 animals at the show and sale.
Photos of each animal will be taken on the day of the show which will be used during the virtual auction, which will begin on Friday, Sept 18 at 8 a.m. and will start to close on Sunday, Sept 20 at 12:00 p.m. Photos of the animals, along with a brief bio for each youth, will be available for viewing starting on Thursday, September 17.
