Spending a few minutes online this afternoon, I came across an absolutely lovely gallery of photos taken by Ted Jackson, NOLA.com 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?
