Friday and Saturday have featured Purebred and Commercial Gilts, as well as the Breeding Doe Show. Beef Heifers begin showing at noon on Sunday, with the market animals of all species to start showing on Tuesday and Wednesday, culminating with the Grand Champion Drive for all four species Thursday evening, March 17.
The Premium Sale will follow on Friday, March 18, in the Rodeo Arena on the Fairgrounds. Norvell does not expect to match the Premium Sale of 2015 that celebrated the centennial of the show- but he believes it will be the second best ever. He also points to expectations for another really strong Breeding Gilt Sale with over 2,500 Purebred and Commercial gilts showing this year, up several hundred from a year ago. He believes that is being driven by the strength of the sale of the top gilts that saw 110 gilts being sold in 2015, grossing over a half million dollars for the exhibitors.
