1977 March third week
4-H/FFA LIVESTOCK SHOW AND SALE
The Livestock shows have gotten earlier in the year than they were 30 years ago. For a while in the early 70's there was a tri-county event for hogs and steers. Montgomery went on their own, holding their event in Vidalia. Wheeler continued with Treutlen at the Stock Yard in Soperton. Today Wheeler has its own show at the 4-H/FFA barn on county property in Alamo. Treutlen has its own show at the barn behind the high school. The old stockyard was torn down.
Young people have been benefited quite well by this part of their education. One of the young men showing his pig in the picture is now a Judge for the Court of Appeals for the State of Georgia.
