Saskatoon Prairieland Park will be the centre of 4-H actvities over the next few days.
Over 200 young people, representing 28 4-H clubs, will participate in the various events at the Prairieland Junior Ag Showcase.
Light horse events are featured Wednesday and Thursday before the beef cattle move in on Friday.
The junior judging competition on Saturday will see 4-H members rank four types of livestock (beef, dairy, sheep, alpaca) as well as a ''mystery'' item.
There will be 88 entries in the beef heifer competition on Sunday and 90 steers in the market steer show on Monday.
The Finished Beef Sale will begin at 6:30 on Monday evening. Local businesses purchase steers at a premium to show their support for 4-H and the province's future beef producers.
A special feature will be a Showcase of Arts celebrating the 100th anniversary of 4-H. Crafts, woodworking and scrapbooks will be on display.
In addition, two student exchange tours are spending time at the Prairieland Junior Ag Showcase. A group of Australians was at the light horse competition on Wednesday. A 4-H delegation from Nova Scotia will interact with Beef Showcase participants on Friday.
