This past weekend the newly insulated Brazos Valley Young Farmers Barn in Munday was filled with excitement as exhibitors from all over Knox County came to show case their animal projects. Occupying the barns this year were 85 hogs, 6 lambs, 25 goats, 3 steers, 4 pens of rabbits, and 8 pens of broilers. The judging began on Friday with the broilers and rabbits by retired Agricultural Science Teacher from Seymour, Ed Blankenship. Following the broilers and rabbits were the lambs and goats in which David Farquhar; Throckmorton Agricultural Science Teacher was the judge for. On Saturday the show continued as David Farquhar classed swine in the morning followed by the steers in the afternoon. The bidding started around 2:00 for the premium sale as crowds of local businesses and individuals filled the stands to place bids on the exhibitors. All exhibitors did a tremendous job preparing their animals months in advance for this past weekend and should be commended on their work. Many volunteers helped to get the barn and staging area ready for this year's show. Individual results in the categories listed were:
