2022 Smithville Livestock Show Schedule & Expense Sheet Reminders


    • Hey all!  

      We wanted to share a couple of reminders for our Smithville Show Exhibitors, since we are about 3.5 weeks away from the show!  There are a few dates and a couple of tasks that will need to be completed.

      As a reminder, the rulebook is available for download HERE (please note that the show and sale for all projects will take place on Saturday, April 23rd) Exhibitors and family members are responsible for knowing the rules that apply to their projects.  Remember that 4-H members are representing our program at all times while at the show and should be following the Texas 4-H Code of Conduct while present at shows.

      Please also note that the rulebook outlines a fine of $100 per violation for not participating in the setup and cleanup events.  If you have a conflict, please get with your species superintendent(s) and your Ag Teacher(s)/County Agent ahead of time to discuss everything.  

      A copy of the estimated schedule is included below!  Please see the rest of the information below and let us know if you have any questions!
