THE DALHART TEXAN

The 2022 Bi-County Livestock Show for Dallam and Hartley Counties will be held next week, from Wednesday January 5 through Saturday January 8 at the Rita Blanca Coliseum.

The barn will open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday for steers and heifers only. The steers and heifers should be in place by 10 a.m., and weight cards are due by 11 a.m. The steer show will begin at 1 p.m., and will be followed by the heifer show. Steer/ heifer showmanship will be next, and that will be followed by PeeWee steer/heifer showmanship at the discretion of the superintendent.

The barn will open at 7 a.m. on Thursday for lambs and goats only, and the lambs and goats should be in place and weight cards are due by 9 a.m. The lamb show will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will be followed by lamb showmanship. Next will be the goat show, and then goat showmanship. PeeWee lamb and goat showmanship will follow, again at the discretion of the superintendent. At approximately 2 p.m., the barn will open for swine, although that does depend on when all the goats and lambs have been removed. Swine should be in place by 4 p.m., and swine weight cards are due by 4:30 p.m., which is when classification will begin.

The barn will open at 6 a.m. on Friday, and the swine show will begin at 9 a.m. That will be followed by swine showmanship, and then PeeWee swine showmanship at the discretion of the superintendent. Rabbits will weigh in from 9:30-11:30 a.m., and the rabbit show will start at noon, followed by rabbit showmanship and then PeeWee rabbit showmanship at the discretion of the superintendent.

The buyer’s lunch will be held on Saturday at noon, and the premium will begin Saturday at 1 p.m. Results and photos from the livestock show will be published in a special section of the Dalhart Texan on January 28.
