BATON ROUGE, La. – The Southern University Ag Center will host its 2021 Virtual Livestock Experience on March 25 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. via Zoom.
This free event is open to all youth. Animals are not required to participate.
During the experience, participants will receive information from current livestock show judges and educators on animal selection, feeding and proper facilities for swine, cattle, sheep, goats, and much more.
The administration of the Southern University Ag Center recommended hosting a virtual Livestock Experience instead of the traditional Livestock and Poultry Show to keep our exhibitors, supporters, and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We still wanted to have an event for the youth of Louisiana to learn and benefit from as they continue to raise animals for years to come,” said Dr. Harold Mellieon, Jr., Livestock Show Director for the Southern University Ag Center. “Having speakers and presenters that are also judges and educators sharing the information with the participants is also a huge benefit because the youth will be able to see how making small changes in their husbandry practices can make a difference in the show ring. And with this being virtual, our participants and their families can be in the safety of their home, absorbing all of the information and asking questions to prepare for the 80th annual show in 2022,” added Mellieon.
