The 2013 District Livestock Show was held  January 31-February 2, 2013 at the Dewitt Livestock Facility on Hwy 71 South in Alexandria.  Two hundred seventy 4-H'ers and FFA members from Avoyelles, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn parishes participated in this event. They exhibited 190 breeding animals and 192 market animals.

The Sale of Champions took place in conjunction with the livestock show. It is  an annual event that is broadcast on News Channel 5 allowing exhibitors to showcase their animals and sale to buyers was held on February 2, 2013. The champion winners are listed below. This event also recognized Matt Martin for his many years of service to the Central LA District Livestock Show.

 "The 4-H livestock project benefits youth by teaching responsibility and helps build confidence and self-esteem. These 4-H members spend endless hours working with these animals preparing for the show. It is an excellent family activity and these 4-H'ers make lifelong friends", says Rodney Johnson, District Livestock Show manager.

Winners from this show earned the opportunity to participate in the state livestock show held in Gonzales, Louisiana.
