Well-groomed livestock and their youthful caretakers will be arriving at the Pawhuska fairgrounds early next week for the Osage County Junior Livestock Show, which runs Wednesday through Friday.

This year’s 79th-annual livestock judging show at the Osage County Fairgrounds is to be held in Clarence Brantley Indoor Arena.

Officials with the Osage County OSU Extension Office said swine judging begins next Wednesday, March 5, followed by sheep and goat judging on Thursday. All remaining competitions and the show auction are scheduled for Friday.

The show will include exhibitors from Osage County’s nine 4-H clubs.
