A brand new event to the Erie County Fair. This has been created with the goals of utilizing the facility to its fullest extent, providing the youth another opportunity to show, bringing clout to the Fair livestock shows and to encourage youth to participate in market projects.
This is open to exhibitors ages 4-21 from the US and Canada. The expo will encompass the 4 market animal species, beef, hog, lamb and goat. The program will require exhibitors to participate in at least one contest outside of the show ring. Contests like marketing, interviewing, stall decorating, herdsmanship and creating educational posters. Through nationally recognized judges, over $18,000 in total premiums for market and showmanship divisions will be awarded. The new schedule will allows for exhibitors that exhibit through 4-H & FFA to compete as well.
