MEMPHIS — Youth, along with their rabbits, chickens, goats, lambs, gilts, barrows, heifers and steers will fill the Hall County Show Barn this week. The livestock show begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23 with the rabbits and chickens.
“All are welcome to come out and watch, but we encourage social distancing,” said Josh Brooks, Hall County Extension Agent.
“We will have a concession stand during the show but not a buyer’s meal on Sunday.”
Entry night is Thursday, Jan. 21 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The animals will be weighed in on Friday. Exhibitors include members of both Hall County 4-H and Memphis FFA.
“There are about 80 pigs, 65 sheep and goats, around 20 rabbits, three chicken exhibitors, four market steers, four sets of commercial steers and two heifers,” said Christian Brooks, Memphis FFA advisor. “Masks will be required for anyone wanting to watch the show, and we will be practicing social distancing as best as possible. We hope to see everyone there.”
The sale will take place Sunday, Jan. 24 at 2 p.m. at the show barn.
