SDSU’s 91st Little International contest set
The 91st Little International takes place Friday and Saturday, March 28 and 29 2014, at South Dakota State University as participants celebrate the lasting legacy of one of the nation’s largest livestock contests. Little International is a two-day agricultural exposition planned, organized, and implemented by students at SDSU. Hundreds of high school students as well as some college students compete in the event, held at SDSU’s Animal Science Arena. Little ‘I’ is managed by SDSU college students and is famous as the largest two-day student-run agricultural exposition in the nation.
There’s no charge for admission and concessions will be available. Events begin at 7:30 a.m. Friday with a full slate of livestock judging contests, showmanship and fitting competitions, as well as club booth displays, with Friday’s events wrapping up with the dairy fitting finals at 9:00 p.m. Saturday’s events kick off with yearling horse showmanship preliminaries at 8 a.m. and conclude with an awards ceremony at 9:15 p.m. A dance at the Days Inn Hotel in Brookings is to follow the Saturday evening events and award ceremony and there will be a $5 fee to get into the dance.
