Columbine Vineyards Holds Spring Classic Livestock Show
DELANO, CA – Columbine Vineyard is giving back and encouraging the next generation of ag workers by hosting this year's Columbine Vineyards (CoVi) Spring Classic Livestock Show.
From March 24 through 26, those looking to boost their current 4-H or FFA experience will have a unique opportunity to do so. CoVi is planning to provide resources for youth and their families looking to learn the ins and outs of livestock showmanship.
“Columbine Vineyards is dedicated to instilling life skills into the future generations of young agriculturalists,” stated Martin Caratan, President, in a company press release. “The CoVi Spring Classic will provide expert resources from the local livestock community. We hope to instill an experience that will encourage our youth to continue or begin with their young livestock careers.”
While there are many jackpot livestock shows throughout the country, the CoVi Spring Classic emphasizes a welcoming atmosphere, and encourages children of all ages to learn and begin showing livestock without any sense of intense competitiveness.
The show is designed primarily for those with less than four years’ experience in livestock shows. The participants will be shown how to groom, brace, and handle their livestock as well as receive lessons in showing etiquette.
Like 4-H and FFA events, the CoVi Spring Classic offers participants prizes in areas of Improvement and Showmanship, and educational resources are available to parents to help navigate their student’s future in livestock.
General admission to the event is free, and a minimal feel is required for participation; hogs, lambs, and goats are $15 and steers are $20.
The event will be held March 24 through 26 at the Memorial Park Livestock Center, 100 Lexington St, Delano, CA 93215. For more details, prospective attendees and participants can contact Amber Cleaver here.
