Chatham, VA - About 120 kids and young adults showed off their livestock projects at Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex today in Chatham. 

This year marks the first year the Pittsylvania Caswell Junior Livestock show has been held at the Ag Complex. 4-H and FFA groups brought heifers, steers, lambs and goats to the event. Participants' ages ranged from 10 years old to 18 years old, and they all raised their own animals.

Officials say they're happy about the turnout. 

"We're just really proud of our young people, we think the leaders of tomorrow are all right here today. From my standpoint and the rest of our committee, we are just delighted to help sponsor an event that we think helps point these kids in the right direction," said Marty Winn, Chairman of Livestock Volunteers.

The mission of the show is to educate young people about raising and marketing livestock. The show ended with a livestock sale at 7 p.m.
