Dixie National Livestock Show 2024
The excitement of the Dixie National Livestock Show is an extravaganza that takes the spotlight, but it’s the hard work behind the scenes that is making a difference in the lives of youth across Mississippi who participate. Livestock shows give talented 4-H and FFA members a chance to shine as they show off their goats, cows, swine, and lambs. With months, sometimes years of work committed to their livestock, these young agricultural experts are honing in their skills and representing the future of American agriculture and farming.
