Over 257 youth have entered 300 validated projects in the Hopkins County Junior Livestock Show, February 25-27 in the Regional Civic Center arena. The show, commonly referred to as NETLA, will feature FFA and 4-H youth in the county who have worked through the year to prepare their animals for the event which includes an auction for winners in each division. Funds from the sale of the animals are often used by the youth for future college expenses or other opportunities that will enable a brighter future.
In the swine division, 78 FFA and 4-H youth will show 108 animals.
Forty-thee (43) lambs will be shown by 36 youth.
Goats will number 47 with 44 exhibitors.
Chickens will feature 68 pens. Each pen will be shown by a different exhibitor.
The steer division will include 34 animals shown by 31 participants.
Each weekday, February 22-26, FFA and 4-H leaders along with students will be guests on KSST’s Morning Show with Enola Gay. Those interviewed will explain NETLA and talk about the various projections to be shown.
