It’s time to get out of that Saturday routine.

Try something different and show support for our local youth by attending the Annual Yadkin-Davie 4-H Livestock Show on Saturday, Aug. 12 at 11 a.m. at

Lone Hickory Arena, 1950 Bethel Church Road, Yadkinville. Admission the free.

“The Annual Yadkin-Davie 4-H Livestock Show is a great opportunity for local youth to showcase their animals as well as the knowledge they gain from these projects,” said Phil Rucker, Davie/Yadkin livestock Extension agent.

Youth from Davie, Yadkin and surrounding counties will be exhibiting their beef, sheep, goats and dairy heifers for a chance to win championships, prizes and bragging rights.

“Through these livestock projects, youth learn important lifeskills like sportsmanship, animal management, dealing with adversity, time management, patience and others,” Rucker said.

The show starts at 11  but come out early and watch the kids groom and prepare their livestock for the judges to evaluate. The concession stand will be open.

Direct questions to the Extension Center at Davie County 336/753-6100 or Yadkin County 336/849-7908.

“These youth have worked hard and would appreciate your support. Change up your ordinary Saturday routine and come support our youth,” he said.
