Marion county most represented county at livestock show

In the Kansas Junior Livestock Show, 713 4-H and FFA members have entered 1,456 animals in the competition Sept. 23 through 26 at the Kansas Pavilions in Wichita. Marion County is sending 31 exhibitors, the most of any county in the state.

Separate from the selection of species champions, a showmanship contest will be held. The top showman in the junior and senior division will receive a silver belt buckle.

KJLS will present a number of scholarships ranging from $750 to $2,500 to exhibitors who have excelled academically, in community service, and in 4-H or FFA. Last year, $18,900 was awarded to 11 exhibitors.

When the competition is complete, grand and reserve steers, hogs, lambs, and goats will be sold at the auction of champions 7 p.m. Sept. 26.
