Junior Livestock Show begins
The Junior Livestock Show begins this week with some 650 young people bringing more than 1,000 farm animals to the Spokane County Fair and Expo Center.
It’s the 75th year for the show, where the 4-H and FFA exhibitors and their families show and sell the livestock.
To commemorate the anniversary, show organizers have produced a $10 book about the show’s rich history in Spokane, which includes the 1950 visit to the show by President Harry S. Truman and comedian Bob Hope.
The showing finals are 6:30 p.m. Friday. The sale of swine and goats begins 8 a.m. Saturday, and the lamb and steer sale begins 9 a.m. Sunday.
Local butchers will be present to take the animals for processing.
