Some people have asked about many animals we have entered at the 2007 state livestock shows.  Following are the numbers of exhibitors and animals:

Market Lambs (October 2006 Show) 235 exhibitors, 461 lambs
Market Goats (October 2006 Show) 168 exhibitors, 318 goats
Market Hogs (Feb 2007 Show) 1176 exhibitors, 1957 hogs
Beef Heifers (Feb 2007 Show) 639 exhibitors, 919 heifers
Steers (Feb 2007 Show) 344 exhibitors, 415 steers
Ewes (Feb 2007 Show) 67 exhibitors, 114 ewes
Dairy Heifers (Feb 2007 Show) 235 exhibitors, 307 heifers

Next question: How does that compare to last year?
Numbers are about the same.

Animal, last year numbers , this year numbers .
Hog, 1955, 1957
Beef Heifer, 900, 919
Steer, 414, 415
Ewe, 118, 114
Dairy, 311, 307

In 2006 there were a total of 2560 4-H and FFA members involved in Junior Livesock projects with a total of 4483 animals entered. Most  states in this country would not come close  to this type of participation .


Keep up the good work !
