On January 22, 2011, three 4-H members from East Carroll Parish participated in the West Carroll Parish Livestock Show. It was the first time in about eight years that East Carroll Parish had 4-H members show animals in a parish livestock show. William Harvey, Cidney Harvey and David Dixon showed their commercial does (goats) in the show. William Harvey received a purple ribbon in his category of aged does, followed by David Dixon and Cidney Harvey, receiving blue and white respectively. The students will be able to compete in the district show being held February 2-5, 2011, and hopefully, at the LSU State Livestock Show. The East Carroll 4-H agent is very proud of these hard-working youth. Wish them luck when you see them!
Mr. David Dixon is a busy young man. On January 29, 2011, he attended the Delhi Horse Show. He and his horse wowed the audience. The 35 youth who attended the Horse Show were judged by the techniques in "British" style riding.
