Good luck to these showman and their animals as they move on to represent Ascension Parish Livestock at the South Central District Livestock Show on February 1-3 at Lamar Dixon Expo Center where they will compete to qualify for the State Livestock Show being at Lamar Dixon February 10-17.

The Ascension Parish Livestock Show was held January 12-13 at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales. The Parish Livestock Show is the first of a series of youth livestock shows where exhibitors present their animals to be judged.

In addition to the animal judging, 4-H’ers and FFA members can participate in premier exhibitor contests that quiz the showman’s knowledge of their livestock project and a showmanship contest that evaluates how well the showman presents their livestock animal to the livestock judge.

There were 92 4-H and FFA members who exhibited over 200 animals in this year’s Ascension Parish Livestock Show! The two day event consisted of a stick horse rodeo, exhibition of rabbits, poultry, sheep, goats, cattle, and swine, and an awards banquet.

The main sponsors for the event were Nutrien, SKR Construction Corp, and Maintenance Dredging. Below are the list of winners from the Ascension Parish Livestock Show! Good luck to these showman and their animals as they move on to represent Ascension Parish Livestock at the South Central District Livestock Show on February 1-3 at Lamar Dixon Expo Center where they will compete to qualify for the State Livestock Show being at Lamar Dixon February 10-17. Please come out and show your support of these awesome youth exhibitor’s and their projects!
