Screven Co. 63rd Annual Livestock Festival underway

Posted: Updated:

One of Screven County's biggest weeks of the year is underway. Hundreds came out on Tuesday night for the Swine Show; part of the 63rd Annual Livestock Festival.

Dozens of youngsters showed their animals to compete for prizes and scholarship money. Abbey Wall came out on top.  She holds the title of 2014 Grand Champion.

"This is just a great opportunity to celebrate the importance of agriculture in our community, and a way to attract the next crop of young people to be our next generation of growers and producers," said Nancy Sell, Livestock Association.

Our own Bureau Chief, Dal Cannady, was there in the celebrity show category.

The animal shows continue Wednesday and Thursday night.
