4-H members compete in The Nevada Junior Livestock Show & Sale

by Members of the 4-H Livestock Projects
Special to The R-C

A fun and educational time was had by all Douglas County 4-H Market Animal members during the four-day, 2013 Nevada Junior Livestock Show held in Reno on May 16-19. The event hosts 4-H and FFA members from across Nevada and neighboring California counties. For four days, youth compete in livestock judging, market and breeding contests, fun festivities and the final sale and auction. We would like to thank all of our supporters and buyers who helped make this the best year ever. 4-H is a youth development program of The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension.

Special thanks to local businesses Raley’s, Bently Ranch, Les Schwab and other private supporters and businesses who supported our youth.
