76th annual 4-H Livestock Show and Sale is next week
Over 175 youth from Nash, Edgecombe and Halifax Counties are slated to participate in this year’s Eastern  Carolina 4-H Livestock Show and Sale.

This year will mark the event’s 76th anniversary of being held.

The Livestock Show and Sale will be held on April 2 and 3 at the Eastern Carolina Livestock Arena in Rocky Mount.

Tanya Heath, who serves as the 4-H agent specializing in livestock for both Nash and Edgecombe Counties, said the event will have many of the same shows as in year’s past but will also have a special addition this year.

On Tuesday night, April 2 at 7:30, a 4-H Special Show will be held. The show will offer an opportunity for both youth and adults with special needs to come out and show a goat. A judge from North Carolina State University will come out and talk to participants about showing.

“That’ll be something new but we really want the public to come out and support them,” Heath said.

The Livestock Show and Sale will begin early on Tuesday morning, with weigh-in for participants. At 12:45, the Livestock Judging Contest will begin. At 2:30 p.m. the Cloverbud Goat Show will be held.

At 3:30 p.m., the County Skillathon Challenge will be held, followed by the Meat Goat Show at 5 p.m. The 4-H Special Show will be the last event held on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, April 3, the Market Hog Show will begin at 8 a.m. with the Market Steer Show to follow at 10 a.m. The Market Lamb Show will be held at 12:30 p.m.

The Livestock Show and Sale will conclude with awards at 6 p.m. and the sale at 6:30 p.m.

Heath said it’s important for the community to support the Livestock Show and Sale, as many of the youth sell their animals and save their money to use on their education or to use to purchase their animals for next year’s show.

“We want the businesses and community to support the kids and see what they are doing,” Heath said.
