02/24/21 4-H Email Blast: Smithville Livestock Show Broiler, Rabbit, & Schedule Updates

This email is geared towards exhibitors entered in the Smithville Livestock Show

Hey all!

We wanted to pass on updates about the 2021 Smithville Livestock Show.  There have been some adjustments to the schedule to assist with social distancing.  We’ve also included some reminders for Broiler & Rabbit Exhibitors.

  • Broiler Exhibitors:

    • The broiler pick-up date is Tuesday, March 2nd, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM at the Smithville HS Ag Shop
  • Rabbit Exhibitors:

    • Please touch base with your rabbit breeder.  The recent bad weather has affected a lot of breeders and their rabbits.  Please let us know if you have any questions or need any help.
  • Other Reminders:

    • The Show Board will require facial coverings to be worn at all times and ask that all attendees use CDC Guidelines (social distancing, proper hygiene, etc.) that keep you and others safe during the livestock show.
    • Additionally, to help limit the number of people present, the show is limiting the number of people to the exhibitor and 4 guests
