The Legislative Showmanship Competition is Saturday in the 4-H Livestock Complex.
About 20 of South Dakota’s legislators will try their hand at showing beef cattle Saturday at this year’s South Dakota State Fair.
The annual Legislative Showmanship Competition – a friendly competition – pairs legislators with a youth livestock exhibitor from their district. The youth partner “fits” the animal, prepares it for competition and offers the legislator a crash course in livestock showmanship. The legislator then shows the animal in the show ring.
