Youth, Volunteers Brave Cold For Livestock Weigh-in

January 8, 2017

Youth and volunteers braved freezing temperatures Saturday morning in Molino as the Gulf Coast Agricultural and Natural Resources Youth Organization held a mandatory weigh-in.

The event at the 4-H facilities on South Highway 99 was a precursor to the 2017 GCA/NRYO Spring Livestock show which will be held on April 1. The day included preliminary swine, market goat and market lamb weigh-ins.

The GCA/NRYO Spring Livestock is open to all FFA and 4-H members in southwest Alabama and Northwest Florida.

    In 1960 I had a sow and litter of 9 pigs in Pensacola Interstate Fair . It was in PNJ as 9 little pigs go to the fair Good luck to all participants in your upcoming spring show!
