MARTIN COUNTY - The annual Martin County Livestock Show begins next Thursday evening when animals are weighed and classified at the Martin County Community Center. The show itself starts Friday morning with the lambs, goats, steers and heifers being shown during the day. On Saturday, the swine show will take up most of the morning hours, giving participants, parents and volunteers time to prepare for the show’s banquet Saturday night, also at the community center. Billy Dale Renfro of Ozona will judge the lambs and goats on Friday morning, with Gary Holder of Andrews coming in later in the day to judge the steers and heifers. On Saturday, Kevin Methvin of Levelland will judge the swine show. Shows start both days at 9 am, with the goats showing first on Friday, followed by lambs, heifers and steers. Weigh-in Thursday evening will be from 4 to 6 pm, while the banquet, which will be catered, starts at 6:30 pm, Saturday. Members of the Stanton FFA, Grady FFA and the Martin County 4-H are competing in each of the five divisions. There is no charge to attend any of the activities of the show, which are open to the public. While there is not a formal concession stand, there will be breakfast items available both mornings. The banquet Saturday night will include the awards program as well as a large silent auction of items which will be on display both days of the show.
