King George Livestock Club preshow

On Saturday, April 12, 2014, the King George Livestock Club had a preshow at Poplar Ridge Farm. The Emory family kindly hosted the preshow for all of youth and Adults part of King George Livestock Club to see, and get the gist of how the Show-and-Sale would be. We all got the opportunity to practice not only with our own project animals, but with other animals we may or may not be familiar with, as well.


Mr. Emory played the role of a judge and gave us all helpful hints. We showed our project animals in a loop, as we would in the show. The preshow was extremely helpful to our new members, and it was a great refresher to the kids that have been in the club for years. Everyone was reminded how the show would be and was helped in areas they needed work on. All of youth in the club had the chance to practice with goats, lambs and steer. We also had a potluck dinner, and the Emory family kindly bought and served the main dish. All the other families brought a side to share. Everyone learned something and was able to have a good time before our Show-and Sale coming up.

Every year, the livestock clubs in the district from each county show their project animal to the judges, parents,

and even the buyers at the Stockyard in Fredericksburg. All youth from ages nine through eighteen in the Livestock Club can show goats, lambs, steer and hogs. First, we show for Showmanship; the judge sees how we interact with our project animals and sometimes our peers’ animals. Next, we show for Market; the judges see how well our animals are built and how firm they are.

Finally, after a long day with our animals, we eat at the Fredericksburg Fairgrounds. This gives us a chance to see our peers and a chance to meet some of the buyers that will support 4-H Livestock Clubs throughout the area. After dinner, we head back to the stockyard to auction off our animals. At the auction, youth put a smile on their face and show the crowd their animals one last time. Buyers from the area have a chance to give generously to the youth of the Livestock clubs around. We often have individual businesses show up and support livestock clubs in the area.
