The 103rd annual Pennsylvania Farm Show continues through Saturday in Harrisburg.
It is the largest all-indoor agricultural expo in North America and will feature 12,000 competitive exhibits, more than 5,000 of which are animal competitions. The show is expected to draw a half-a-million visitors.
Amy Metric, the Butler County 4-H educator for the Penn State Extension, said the Butler County 4-H contingent this year is about 20 students.
“We have about 20 kids here,” Metric said. “All of them have brought some kind of livestock to compete.”
New at this year’s show is new livestock classes and the addition of a new breed of beef cattle.
The show is free to attend, but there is a fee for parking.
