Annual Livestock Show, March 1-3

Baton Rouge, LA- the SU Ag Center will hold its 69th Annual Livestock Show. Youth from across Louisiana are getting ready to display their animals in a competitive, yet family oriented environment at the Annual State Livestock Show organized by the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center, March 1-3.

The Show will be held at the M.A. Edmond Arena in Baker, located on Scenic Hwy.

The Show features prize-winning animals that have won in parish and district competitions. Judges will name the state champions in different breeds including lamb, swine, goats, beef and dairy cattle. This year, the event will feature an old fashion livestock decorating contest called “Night with the Stars,” on Friday March 2 at 7 pm. Tour groups will discuss various animals, their food sources, farming and how agriculture plays a part in everyone’s life.

The Southern University Ag Center Livestock Show remains the premiere event for displaying youth showmanship and quality animals. The Show and related programs teach leadership, character development, and entrepreneurship skills to the youth who prepare year round for competitions.

An awards presentation will take place on Saturday, March 3 at 8:30 am, followed by the Junior Auction Animal line-up at 10:30 am and concludes with the Sale of Champions.
