Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — There's a big livestock show at the Southern Ag Center this week, and kids of all ages are showing off their hard work and their animals.
Children at the Maurice Edmond Livestock Arena told NBC33 this is a great opportunity.
"You have to feed them almost like once or twice a day. You have to keep haying them,” stated Hayden Spann, who raises cows. “(You have to) make sure they have water, make sure their fence is up, and make sure they have shelter."
The livestock show helps youngsters develop leadership and ownership skills at an early age.
