(lärj lîv’stok’): Large animals raised for food or other products, or kept for use, especially farm animals such as meat and dairy cattle and pigs.
ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Toyota Large Livestock department is one of the busiest departments at the Fair! There’s always action as exhibitors hustle and bustle around the fairgrounds taking care of their animals. You’ll always see someone walking a cow, blow-drying a sheep, or grooming a pig. That’s normal procedure around here!
The brand new Judge William P. Clark Livestock Center is a beautiful place for you to enjoy the Large Livestock Exhibits.
Did you know that 200 years ago the first fair featured a beautiful specimen of sheep tied to a tree in the town square? Livestock is and always has been the mainstay of the country fair.
4H, Grange, FFA, and independent exhibitors have worked hard all year to present this authentic livestock experience.
