The 2014 Utah State Junior Livestock Show lasted from April 30 - May 3.  This event has been going on consecutively for the last 90 years.  Between the volunteers that work to put on stock shows there has been over a hundred years of work.  It is a great opportunity for youth to learn lessons they can use for the rest of their lives.  Any student age  8-18 can enter their livestock, to be judged or sold.  They have a chance to win prizes such as belt buckles, and medallions.  It is an educational, and rewarding service.

There were 230 participants in both market, and showmanship classes.  Market classes judge the quality of the animal.  Showmanship judges the exhibitors ability to show their animal.

2nd in market class: Taylor McDaniel, Emily Waters, Shayla Draper, Bridger Mason.  8th place showmanship and record book winner - Madison Houston.  12th place market - Rex Galloway.  Grand Champion market - Maddy Galloway.  Congratulations to all these hard working students!
