“Laurens County 4-H is extremely excited to be hosting the Laurens County Youth Livestock Show along with our sponsors Laurens County Cattlemen’s Association and Laurens County Fair Association. It is always very fulfilling to see the improvement and hard work Laurens County 4-H members put into their project animals,” said Kendall Winn, 4-H Youth Development Agent
Laurens County Cooperative Extension. “These youth have poured themselves into their animals for many months and are now able to display their skills on a county-wide stage. This will be the first Laurens County Youth Livestock Show since 2019 and we are eagerly awaiting the return of our show as I believe many Laurens County 4-H members are as well.”
