2018 Albemarle Area 4-H Livestock Show and Sale

— Written By and last updated by Stacy Hairfield

The Currituck County Extension staff and 4-H livestock participants would like to invite you to show your support at the 2018 Albemarle Area 4-H Livestock Show and Sale. This event will be held on Tuesday, April 24th and Wednesday, April 25th at the Albemarle Area 4-H Livestock Arena, located on Pro-Gro-Drive in Elizabeth City, NC.

Several Currituck 4-H members are working hard to train, care for and prepare livestock animals they have purchased for showing and then for market. Many of these youth use the proceeds from the sale of their animals to save for college or other future plans. You can help our local 4-Hers by buying an animal at the auction, sponsoring awards, or simply cheering them on! Please see our schedule of events below. For more information please contact Stephanie Minton, 252-232-2262 or via email at stephanie_minton@ncsu.edu.
