Goat show
 Baton Rouge, LA - The Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center concluded its 69th Annual Livestock Show with more than 400 participants from across the state on March 3. During the three-day event, youth from across the state had the opportunity to display winning animals contending for top prizes. Winners of state champions in various breeds of beef and dairy cattle, hogs, sheep, lamb, and goats received rosettes, banners and ribbons. The pre-school children from local schools enjoyed the all-time favorite petting zoo, featuring a variety of small farm animals. Tour stops included discussions about different animals, their food sources; the effect of agriculture on everyone's life; face-painting; tobacco-free living, and healthy eating habits.

Top prize for the champion market lamb, $4,240 went to Mackenzie Castro of Assumption Parish; Hunter Millican of East Baton Rouge Parish claimed champion market steer at $3,600, and Kendyl Balentine of Bossier Parish, took home $3,500 for champion market goat.
