Area livestock shows are b-a-a-a-a-ck

January 13, 2011

A little cold weather wasn't about to stop this hardy group of future farmers.

Despite frigid temperatures, the annual Howard County Junior Livestock Show began its annual run Wednesday at the county fair barns.

The show, which runs through Saturday, features 122 exhibitors showing 311 entries, a decrease of 84 animals from last year's show, officials said.

The most probable cause for the decrease, they said, was the economy. It costs several hundred dollars to care for and prepare an animal for livestock show presentation.
