The Suwannee River Youth Livestock Show & Sale moves into its second and final week of action as swine, life skills, barbecue, and steers take the spotlight.
And it all culminates on Wednesday, March 23 when buyers pour into the Fair Pavilion and try to set a new record: $1 million. Sales last year fell just short of that figure at just under $975,000. So the pressure is not just n the competitors from Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy counties, but on the buyers too.
Last year, 369 animals were sold, 232 of those being hogs, 103 feeder steers and 34 fat steers.
