GROVETON — After a year without, the Trinity County Fair & Youth Livestock Show kicked off Wednesday — with just a few changes.
Instead of a weekend affair, the shows have been spread out over four days to keep in compliance with CDC guidelines, said Fair Board President Bill Wagner.
On Wednesday, rabbits and chickens were checked in and judged; Thursday will see steers and lambs; Friday will be goats and swine; and Saturday will feature the livestock sale.
Even so, Wagner said the first day was going fine. In all, there are 146 entries: 15 steers, five lambs, 18 goats, 57 hogs, 11 heifers, 13 broilers and 27 fryers.
The remaining schedule for the week is:
1 p.m. Fryer show
4:30 p.m. Commercial heifers test and record book turn-in at the Groveton High School Ag Building.
7:30 a.m. Steer sift
8-10 a.m. Heifers, lambs and steers check-in.
