Master Showmanship for 4-H
The Illinois Master Showmanship Contest at the Illinois State Fair can be summed up in one word – characteristics! First, you need to know how to present an animal to bring out its best characteristics. Secondly, and more importantly, showmanship is about improving the great characteristics in you!
A good showperson needs to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable, responsible, and caring towards animals. The YEA! program and RFD Radio award prizes in three livestock divisions: beef, sheep, and swine. Plus, the top top
three overall winners receive prizes, too.
