This year's Pottawatomie County Junior Livestock Show will be held Feb. 28 through March 3 at the Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center.

Ahead of that event was the 28th annual Pig Roast and Trophy Auction, held Monday night at the Expo Center. The preliminary numbers of the annual event reveal a record-setting year of $34,000 raised. 

Monday night, Laree Barnett and Linda Goodson also were recognized as the 2017 show honorees for their commitment in working toward the betterment of the FFA and 4-H exhibitors.

“Through the years I have been very involved supporting agriculture youth in Pottawatomie County,” Barnett said.

Goodson said, “...I have enjoyed watching this little livestock show blossom into one of the largest and best ran shows in the state of Oklahoma.”
