The Pittsburg County Junior Livestock Show offers the opportunity for our young people to experience segments of production agriculture on a small scale through their livestock projects.

It is the intention of those who support this event that these young people have the opportunity to learn valuable lessons that would include being responsible, the ethical and safe treatment of livestock, how to convert resources into a marketable product and awareness of the economic factors relating to their projects. 

This project will help them in interacting with others and provides training to accept future leadership roles, as well as continue their education. It is the belief of the stock show committee that through support of our youth today, our community will yield better citizens for tomorrow.

The Stock Show will be held Feb. 25-29, 2020 at the Pittsburg County Fairgrounds. Exhibitors must be a bona fide 4-H or FFA member in good standing, of a Pittsburg County 4-H Club of FFA Chapter.
