2022 Chowan County 4-H Livestock Show & Sale… | Herald Chowan

The Chowan County 4-H Livestock Show and Sale will be held on Tuesday, April 19. The event will take place at the American Legion Fairgrounds.

Chowan County youth between the ages of 5 and 18 are eligible to participate in the cattle show.

Cloverbud exhibitors (ages 5-7) learn how to move around the ring and gain experience in showmanship techniques. Exhibitors between the ages of 8 and 18 are judged on their showmanship abilities and their animals are judged on market compliance.

Participating in the livestock show is a great way for youngsters to learn about responsibility, self-confidence and herding.

Fifty-six young people from Chowan County participated in the 2021 show. There were 12 goat exhibitors and 44 pig exhibitors. The Grand Champion Pig was presented by Hannah Pippins and the Grand Champion Goat was presented by Kerringtin Lane.

Over 70 local businesses and individuals have registered as buyers for the auction.
