The 35th annual Clay County Junior Livestock Show and Youth Fair, at the Perry Woods Agriscience Facility behind Henrietta High School, gets underway Thursday with a new schedule.
This year, students will show cattle projects on Thursday instead of the usual Saturday, followed by rabbits, broilers and swine on Friday and sheep and goats on Saturday. The youth fair will take place Thursday evening at the Henrietta High School Cafeteria.

The auction is a chance for area businesses and individuals to reward students for their hard work. Last year’s livestock auction brought $54,750, with an additional $3,500 earned in the youth fair auction.

Each year, the Henrietta Kiwanis Club forms buyers’ pool through donations, using the purchasing power to guarantee each student gets a fair price. Donations can be made to any Kiwanis Club member before or during the show. Add-ons for individual students also are accepted. The add-ons table will be located along the west wall of the facility during the auctions.
