OverviewWhen: April 11, 2019 from 3:30 - 6 p.m.
Where: Wirt County High School
Who: Youth interested in showing livestock at the Wirt County Fair
What is the livestock clinic?
Youth are invited to attend an informational livestock clinic after school on April 11, 2019. The clinic will provide youth with information on properly selecting, caring for, and showing livestock animals as well as an overview of rules and requirements for the Wirt County Fair.
Once youth arrive at the high school, there will be an overview of important information related to exhibiting livestock at the Wirt County Fair. Information to be covered includes tagging dates, weight ranges for all species, check in procedures, and other general rules applying to all livestock exhibitors.
At 4 p.m., youth will break into groups and go through a series of station rotations focused on preparing them to select and care for livestock. At 5 p.m., youth will be able to break up into groups based on what species they plan to exhibit at the fair. There will be a chance for youth and parents to ask questions about selecting livestock animals and proper showmanship. Snacks will also be provided for youth during the workshop.
