Jr Livestock Show

Article Date: 
10 June, 2011 (All day)


The 56th Annual Morgan County Jr. Livestock Show was held on Saturday, June 4, 2011 at the Morgan County Fairgrounds. 230 4-H and FFA exhibitors from Morgan County and several other counties in Utah and Wyoming showed steers, hogs and lambs.  

This show provides fitting and showing experience.  Morgan County 4-H/FFA exhibitors are required to participate in this show or the Oakley Jr. Livestock Show on June 18th to qualify to sell their animals at the Morgan Co. Jr. Livestock Sale held August 6th during the Morgan County Fair.

In addition to showing their animals, exhibitors participated in a judging contest.  Four hogs, lambs and steers were judged separately by the exhibitors who were required to place them from 1st to 4th and mark their placements on a judging card. A judge then placed the animals and explained their reasons to help teach the youth what type of animals they should choose for livestock projects.  Mark McMillan judged the hogs, Randy Potter judged the lambs and Jordan Deru judged the steers.  The exhibitors received points for coming closest to the judge’s placement.

The show judges for showmanship and quality judging were all members of the Casper College Judging Team and reside in Vernal.  Amy Henline judged the hogs.  Jeff Long judged the steers and Rhett Long judged the lambs. Thanks to everyone who helped make this show a success! See you at the fair!
