Jr. FFA Getting Ready for Netla Show This Weekend

Dakota Klemptner of the Sulphur Bluff Jr. FFA Chapter is getting his project ready to show at the Hopkins County Junior Market Livestock Show. Dakota is a 10-year-old fifth grader at Sulphur Bluff ISD. His pig “Smokey” will be shown in his weight class during the Swine Show starting at noon Friday February.  The top-scoring livestock, from poultry to steers, will be selected for the “Sale of Champions” set for 1pm Saturday February 25 in the Civic Center arena, sponsored by NETLA, the Northeast Texas Livestock Association.

On Friday February 24, Dakota and other 4H and FFA members will be among these showing 88 swine projects, 64 poultry projects and 25 steers as well as a number of heifers.  43 lamb and 57 goat entries will be shown on Thursday Feb. 23 starting at noon. Come out and meet these “future farmers and ranchers” and see their animal projects! Added money can be placed for youth whose projects make Saturdays sale, to be added to their scholarship earnings. Buyers and bidders are welcome. Admission is free. A stew lunch prepared by the Hopkins County Ag Workers Association will be offered at noon Saturday.
