4-H and FFA Livestock Shows

4-H and FFA livestock exhibits make up the majority of exhibits at the Delta County Fair each year. Exhibitors in 4-H can start showing market livestock programs at 8 years old and show until they are 18. FFA projects are exhibited by high school students starting Freshman year and with certain projects can show even after they graduate from high school.

4-H and FFA members take great pride in raising and exhibiting market and breeding livestock projects. Many of our county youth who show at the Delta County Fair have breeding livestock projects where they coordinate the breeding of pigs, sheep, goats or cattle to fit a specific genetic line to produce quality market show animals. The exhibitors then sell or bring their own animals back to the county fair to compete against other exhibitors for the title of Grand and Reserve Champion.

County Bred & Fed Programs

Delta County Fair is proud to say that the majority of animals exhibited at the fair, especially market beef, are locally bred and raised animals. Some people wonder what we mean by Delta County Bred & Fed though. The Bred & Fed Programs vary in specifics by species and include Swine, Sheep, Goat and Beef. What all these programs have in common though is they encourage 4-H and FFA members to use local animals to enhance their genetic line and purchase animals from local producers. Delta County 4-H and FFA members after purchasing a Delta County born animal then feed the animal and follow industry standards for producing a quality market show animal to exhibit at the Delta County Fair. These programs encourage 4-H and FFA Members to spend money for livestock locally instead of traveling out of county or state to purchase high dollar show animals.
