Miller Co. Junior Heifer Show Saturday- Miller Co. Market Hog Show Monday

Miller County cattle and hog show participants are busy preparing their cows and hogs for the two shows to be held this coming Saturday, February 16, and Monday, February 18.

The Miller County Cattlemen’s Association is sponsoring their annual Junior Heifer Show on Saturday, February 16, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

The event will be held at the Miller County Agricultural Center Show Barn on U.S. Highway 27 North.

There will be seven exhibitors showing 10 heifers in the 2013 show. A concession stand will be available for lunch. Also they will be having a cake auction with some of the finest cakes you will find anywhere around.

Then on Monday, February 18, the Miller County Junior Market Hog Show and Sale will be held at the Miller County Agricultural Center Show Barn on U.S. Highway 27 North.

Thirty exhibitors ranging from kindergarten through 12th grade will be exhibiting approximately 54 show hogs in this upcoming event.

Showmanship classes will begin at 3:00 p.m. Monday afternoon. The Junior Market Hog weight classes will follow showmanship.

Pork BBQ sandwiches, chips and drinks will be sold at the concession stand.

The hog sale and awards program will begin shortly after the weight classes are over.

These programs teach our youth responsibility. Everyone is invited to come out and support these young exhibitors at the heifer show on Saturday and the hog show on Monday evening.
