Shows and Exhibits

While enjoying the fair, be sure to stop by the livestock exhibit. We have animals of all kinds.

  • Cows to pigs to rabbits to name just a few.
  • The young men and women who take care of them can’t wait to show them off.

Be sure to pop in and chat with them about their livestock.

These manuals have been developed as study guides for the Florida State Fair Skillathon which is part of the Champion Youth Program. The topic for this year’s Skillathon is nutrition and feeding management. The Florida State Fair recognizes that agricultural education instructors, 4H agents, parents, and leaders provide the traditional and logical instructional link between youth, their livestock projects and current trends in the animal agriculture industry.  PLEASE NOTE: These manuals are provided as a study guide for the skillathon competition and should be used as an additional aid to ongoing educational programs. Sections are labeled Junior, Intermediate & Senior, Intermediate & Senior, or Senior to help exhibitors and educators identify which materials are required for each age level.
