Smiley face

Northeast Texas Livestock Association’s annual Hopkins County Junior Livestock Show started with an agriculture mechanics project show and contest on Tuesday, then got into full swing Thursday with FFA and 4-H members from across Hopkins County showing their lamb and goat projects. The lamb show started the show, and featured five classes, three showmanship categories and concluded with the naming of grand and reserve champions.
