FFA, 4-H and breed association members will have the opportunity to exhibit beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, meat goats, sheep and swine. The Little American Royal is billed as the largest spring show in Colorado with entries numbering as many as 1,200 in all six shows.
Dairy, meat goats and swine will be shown on Friday evening, April 30. Beef cattle, horses and swine will be shown on Saturday, May 1.
The culmination of the show is the All Around Showmanship, with showmanship winners from all six species competing for the prize of Champion All Around Showman. Awards include 96 trophies and 12 belt buckles presented by our faithful donors following the All Around Showmanship competition.
