York County Fall Livestock Show

The programs are printed, the classes are set, and the ring is ready...Tonight began the final phase of preparing for the largest South Carolina Only Youth Livestock Show in our state.  We spent a few hours out at Triple Creek Farm getting all the last minute details together.  This week is always a whirlwind of activity and lots of stress but worth every minute of the year long preparation. 

Let me give you a few details about the show...it began in 2002 after our county fair decided the would no longer host a livestock show for the youth of York County and sold the land the show barn was on to a local university.  A group of parents got together and decided they would step up and begin hosting a yearly show.  With support from the community and numerous volunteers we put together a show.  We continued the tradition today.

The committee has changed and evolved to represent our changing livestock community around the state.  We never know what breeds we will have for beef and sheep however we know without a doubt the kids will come out and have a great time.  So if you are in the Rock Hill, SC area this weekend come out and join us for a great time.
