2012 South Dakota Summer Spotlight brings youth, livestock to Huron, July 27-29

BROOKINGS, SD – The 2012 South Dakota Summer Spotlight and State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest will be held July 27-29 in Huron, SD.

“The South Dakota Summer Spotlight is designed to highlight South Dakota’s youth involved in livestock and provide them with opportunities to showcase their talent,” said Rod Geppert, SDSU Extension 4-H Livestock Show Management Coordinator.

The event encompasses beef cattle, sheep, swine and a market/meat goat show.

Along with hosting youth beef, swine, sheep and goat shows, it will also be the site of the State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest, South Dakota Youth Beef Ambassador Contest and the South Dakota Born and Bred Lamb Show.

“Events like these in combination with the All Beef Breeds Field Day, sheep and swine shows will attract a large number of livestock enthusiasts,” Geppert said.

Last year more than 400 cattle, 300 hogs, 400 sheep and 100 goats exhibited at the event, in addition to the 350 youth who participated in the State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest. In addition, beef exhibitors will have the opportunity to attend a “Stock Show University,” fitting clinic, sponsored by Sullivan’s Supply on Friday evening.
