The 77th annual Central Piedmont Junior Livestock Show and Sale was recently held on April 11th and 12th in Hillsborough, NC. The tradition began on April 24, 1946, in Durham. This is the 35th year the show was held at the Central Carolina Holstein Association Barn in Orange Grove. This event is open to 4-H and FFA youth ages 5-18 in Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rockingham, and Wake Counties.

Alamance County had eight 4-H members showing 14 animals in this year’s show. Two of those 4-H members were showing for the first time. Winners from Alamance County include the following. Caleb Schmid exhibited a market hog winning Junior (ages 8-10) Showmanship Grand Champion and 1st place in his market hog type class. Corey and David Schmid each exhibited a market hog as Cloverbuds. Cloverbud youth are ages 5-7 and show non-competitively.

It takes a lot of community support from civic groups, businesses, and individuals in sponsorship funds to put together an event like this. N.C. Cooperative Extension agents and vocational agriculture teachers work with the youth to advise on raising and showing animals. Youth show several different types of animals in this event, including hogs, sheep, goats, and beef cattle.
