For most of the participants, this is their first time showing animals. Trenton, Nola, Chase, and Elsa all showed rabbits and chickens. Freya showed her potbellied pig, chickens, and quail. Our judge was looking more at showmanship skills of the youth and did not judge on the body types or breeds of the animals being shown. Tammara Talley, 4-H Agent in Macon County, was our judge for the show. She took the time to talk to the youth during and after the show about their animals and what she was looking for in their presentations of the animals.

In the Juniors Rabbit: 1st Place was Chase Payne, 2nd Place was Trenton Green, and 3rd Place was Nola Harrison. For the Senior Rabbit: 1st Place went to Elsa Holland. For the Pig Category, we had one Senior age participant that handled her pig well and had great knowledge of her animal so 1st Place went to Freya Burgess. In the Junior Chicken: 1st Place was Chase Payne, 2nd Place was Nola Harrison, and 3rd Place was Trenton Green. In the Senior Chicken: 1st Place was Freya Burgess and 2nd Place was Elsa Holland.Image of boy with chicken
