Western 4-H Family and Consumer Science Show and Junior Livestock Rodeo held

By Audra Scheel, SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Program Advisor, and Chris Maupin

Cain, Cannon and Delaney Zoss all competed in the 4-H Livestock Judging Contest during Western Jr.

The 57th Annual Western 4-H Family and Consumer Science Show was held in October at the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City.

While this is called a show, it consists of various contests for developing life skills that 4-Hers, youth, and adults may participate in. It runs in conjunction with the Western Junior Livestock Show. The 2019  FCS Show had over 500 entries from 194 contestants from South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska and Montana.

The show is volunteer run by a group of people from South Dakota and Wyoming.  The contests are bread baking, meat identification, family life photo, scrapbook pages, home living, place setting, fashion revue (both sewn and purchased), public presentation, ingredient measuring, Family and Consumer Sciences judging, Produce ID and judging, and a  Family and Consumer Sciences Skill-a-Thon. The public viewed the exhibits after many contests, and the Saturday contests were followed by an honoree tea, public fashion show and awards presentation.
