[April 17, 2017]    LINCOLN - Is this your first year in the show ring or are you a pro? Either way, join us on Sunday April 23rd at the Logan County Fairgrounds (1408 Short 11th St., Lincoln) for a cattle, swine, sheep and goat Clinic.

We have restructured our program into two different clinics: 101 for beginners and 201 for those more advanced in their knowledge. We will help you get prepared with the basics you need to care for your animal at home and during the fair. We will cover topics from daily hair care and proper tools, to proper etiquette at the show and in the ring. We will have judges there to help guide you on what to do while showing your animal. Donít forget about health papers and registration guidelines, we can help you with information on that as well.

We hope to see 4-Herís of all ages at this event, it is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about livestock! We are also excited to announce the Lincoln Land Livestock Judging team will be hosting the morning session on judging!

For those that pre-register, there will be t-shirts and lunch will be provided for $5 per person. See you on April 23rd at 9 am!
