The Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center is hosting its 70th Annual Livestock Show for youth participants, through March 2, 2013 at the Maurice Edmond Livestock Arena, 14600 Scenic Highway, Baton Rouge. During the three-day event, young farmers and ranchers from across the state will have the opportunity to display animals that have been showcased or have won in parish competitions.
The purposes of the show are to stimulate a greater interest in increasing the production of livestock among farmers in Louisiana, serve as a basis for improving breeding practices for livestock, create interest in producing livestock products as business enterprises, assist in developing a better spirit of cooperative effort among rural and urban residents, and provide an opportunity for youth to develop ownership and leadership skills.
