The Western Junior Livestock Show was organized in 1937 and has been an
annual event since. The first show included only the feeder calf project but
since that time the show has grown to include sheep, swine, dairy, goats, and
other projects relating to livestock production. The show was developed as a 4-H
youth show to serve as a show window for the livestock industry from this area.
To set a standard of type and quality, which serves as a guide to every
interested producer and provide a competitive outlet for 4-H youth club work.
