The second biggest animal show day at the Robeson Regional Agricultural Fair is the second Saturday with the livestock shows. We start as the fair opens with the lamb shows and move on to find the beef. This year we had almost 30 youth with 53 lambs participating in this year's competition.

As is common with the animal shows we started with the cloverbuds, our 5-* year olds who are not competing against each other, rather gaining experience in the ring. Showing their stuff of in this category were; Hunter Mercer, Shane Kendall, Colbey Matthis, and Tate Naylor. Each showman took home a trophy and $5.
In our next category of 9-10 year old showmen Chasen Matthis took home the white ribbon, Roxie Long came in second, and Wyatt Kendall took home the blue ribbon. Hannah Long rounded off this division taking home a participation ribbon for her work. In the 11-13 year old age division there were two showmen. Hannah Carter came in second, and Robeson County's own Benjamin Herndon came in first place. The senior division was fraught with competition. When it was said and done Dalton sells came in first place, Samantha Naylor took home the red ribbon, and Tanner Riegel placed third. Rounding out the age division with participant ribbons were Emmerald Layton, Brittany Truesdale, and Cole Mullis.
After the 4-H showmanship competition is the 4-H market lamb show. In this division the lambs are divided into divisions by weight. This year the lightweight division was 73-117 pounds, and we had 11 competitors. the division looked like this when we got done:

After the heavy weight division it was time to chose grand and reserve champion. To do this the judge brings the first place winner from each division into the ring and chooses Grand Champion. In the ring were Tanner Reigel with Cash, Kendall Wyatt with Stomper, Samantha Naylor with 369. Walking away with the Grand Champion trophy was Wyatt Kendall with Stomper. Stepping into the ring was Dalton Sells with Darel to compete for reserve champion. When the judge took a good look at all the the lambs Samanth Naylor with 369 walked away with the trophy and $50 prize.
