It's time once again for the Spring Livestock Show and the numbers of exhibits are expected to be bigger and better this year.

FFA and 4-H members from all over Delaware County will be on hand exhibiting their cattle, swine, sheep and goats in the hopes of taking home that Grand Champion trophy.

On Saturday, business members and individuals will be bidding for premiums on the top animals, right after you enjoy a BBQ lunch provided by Grand Savings Banks.

On March 20, you won't want to miss out on buying some homegrown beef for your table. The auction will follow a free lunch.
