The Miami County Livestock Association will again be sponsoring the Miami County Livestock Show at the county fairgrounds on May 4 in Paola.

The following classes will be available: market beef (steers and market heifers), breeding heifer classes will be determined after entries; bucket calf; market lambs; market and breeding goats; and showmanship classes, Jr (7-9) Intermediate (10-13) and Senior (14-18).

Beef weigh-in will be from 7 to 8:30 a.m., and the bucket calf show will begin at 9 a.m., followed by the heifer show, beef showmanship and market beef show.

Lamb weigh–in is from 11 a.m. to noon, and the show will start 30 minutes after the market beef show. Goats weigh in from noon to 1 p.m., and the goat show will follow the conclusion of the lamb show.

Pre-entries are due April 29, but late entries are accepted. This year’s Grand and Reserve winners will receive belt buckles for the Grand and Reserve Market Beef, Supreme and Reserve Supreme Heifer, Grand and Reserve Market Lambs, and Grand and Reserve Market Goats, according to the release.

There also will be prizes for the class winners and showmanship winners.
