baby pigletSpending a few minutes online this afternoon, I came across an absolutely lovely gallery of photos taken by Ted Jackson, The Times-Picayune, from the 2013 St. Tammany Parish Junior Livestock Show and Auction in Covington, Louisiana.

There’s a beautiful, white pig being groomed for competition.  Another photo shows a young lady snuggling and giving her Bantam rooster a critical look-over to make sure he’s perfect.  Of course, it wouldn’t be a livestock competition without some cattle showing their stubborn side. Didn’t the young men and women raise some fine livestock?
