State Livestock Show

Welcome to the 89th LSU AgCenter Livestock Show. This event provides an opportunity for some of the most outstanding youth in the state to receive recognition for their hard work in learning how to raise and care for a wide array of animals. This educational event includes both 4-H and FFA members, and both organizations help to develop future Louisiana leaders. This show provides a glimpse of some of the best young people in the state and some of the most significant outcomes of our youth development programs. The experiences gained through 4-H and FFA, and specifically through caring for and exhibiting livestock, help young people develop into responsible citizens, community leaders and strong contributors to the Louisiana workforce.

The 2024 State Livestock Show will take place Feb. 10-17, 2024, at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales, Louisiana.
