Delta Fair/Mid-South Fair will fill livestock void as big show relocates
Memphis Commercial Appeal
For city people, the cattle, sheep and pigs at regional and state fairs offer a simple look at rural life.
But to the young people who raise, groom and breed those animals, competing in local fairs increases the animals’ value and helps them potentially earn money for college.
The Mid-South Fair was for 152 years the place area youths went to show. But its transition status in Southaven this year means no livestock competitions.
