The past two weekends, on October 2nd, 8th, and 9th, over 60 exhibitors and 110 animals came to the Laurens County to participate in the 2021 Laurens County Youth Livestock Shows. This show put on by the Laurens County 4-H Program and the Laurens County Cattlemen’s Association and attracts youth from across the state of State Carolina. On October 2nd, the dog and rabbit show took place as a part of Squealin’ on the Square in downtown Laurens. October 8th and 9th consisted of art and beef on Friday and dairy, market lamb, and meat goat on Saturday at the Laurens County Exchange Building. There were a great number of spectators including parents, relatives, and community members. Due to the unwavering support of the community, each class received awards.

Every year a memorial scholarship is given at the dairy show.  Sierra Tinsley, of Pelzer, SC, was the recipient of the Wesley Robinson Memorial Scholarship, which is given by the Laurens/Greenville 4-H Dairy Club.  The Dairy Club was honored to give this award to a youth who showed great knowledge and poise within their project and is the future of the livestock industry.
