Good old summer fun makes the Junior Livestock Show a true celebration of youth in agriculture. More than 300 youth from ages 8 to 18 present the dairy cows, beef, sheep, goats, and swine they own, care for, and have prepared for this competition. If you have never been to this grand event, with youth from nine counties, please visit and cheer these kids on!

Admission to the show is free and the public is welcome to attend. 

The deadline for Junior Livestock Show entries is June 4. Show books will be mailed out one per family. The books have 2 entry forms included in them. Make copies or get additional copies from the 4-H office.

Since 1947, The Farmers’ Museum has collaborated with the Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program to produce the show, which is the second largest youth competition in New York State.
