Showmanship winners told at LSU Livestock Show

By Rick Bogren, LSU AgCenter

In addition to selecting winning animals, judges also identified individual contestants for their showmanship skills at the 85th annual LSU AgCenter Livestock Show at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.

Junior, intermediate and senior champion showmanship awards were presented to exhibitors in each of the 10 animal categories; dairy cattle, beef cattle, miniature beef cattle, swine, exhibition poultry, broiler poultry, sheep, breeding dairy goats, breeding meat goats and market goats. Supported by an endowment from Nutrien, awards were presented in the junior 9- to 11-year-old, intermediate 12- to 14-year-old and senior 15-year-olds and up divisions.

Senior champion showmen receive $250 awards, and intermediate and junior champions receive $125 awards.

“Showmanship not only generates enthusiasm in the show ring but teaches many valuable lessons used in day-to-day life,” said Dwayne Nunez, LSU AgCenter livestock show manager. “These lessons include responsibility, work ethic, determination to reach a goal, winning graciously and accepting setbacks with dignity.”

Award winners from Cameron Parish in each category are as follows:

  • Miniature Beef - senior, Landon Deshields, Cameron Parish 4-H.
  • Beef - intermediate, Blayze Saltzman, Cameron Parish 4-H.
