Despite having to prepare their animals in the middle of a pandemic, hundreds of young people from across Louisiana were named state champions during the 86th annual LSU AgCenter Livestock Show held at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center.

To qualify for the state show, competitors had to first participate in parish and district livestock shows across Louisiana. At the state show, 1,689 youths exhibited 1,707 breeding animals and 874 birds, according to the AgCenter Livestock Show Manager Dwayne Nunez.



Judges at the LSU AgCenter Livestock Show determined state champions in various breeds of beef and dairy cattle, goats, swine, poultry and sheep.

Although the event showcases examples of the state’s important livestock industries, AgCenter administrators say it is much more than that.

“This year’s livestock show presented challenges with the pandemic and the weather, but our youth are resilient, and we were so happy to be able to have a livestock show for them so they could get the recognition they deserve for all the hard work they put into it,” said Bill Richardson, LSU vice president for agriculture. “Every youngster who participated in this show is a champion because of the dedication, skills and knowledge they’ve demonstrated by caring for their animals.”



Richardson said the livestock show demonstrates the result of years of hard work on the part of the 4‑H and FFA members.

“But we also see the support of parents, teachers, volunteer leaders and others who helped them along the way,” he said.

The 2021 livestock show exhibitor premium awards were made possible by endowed funding from Price LeBlanc, the Meraux Foundation, Gerry Lane Enterprises and Nutrien. Other major donors responsible for making the 2021 show possible are our Corporate Arena Sponsorships by First South Farm Credit, Sunshine Quality Solutions, Mosaic, Louisiana Land Bank and Louisiana Cattlemen’s Association. Other contributing sponsors included Zen-Noh Grain Corporation, the Louisiana 4-H Foundation, Louisiana FFA Foundation and the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation.
