Steers continue to make a comeback at the Nordheim FFA Stock Show.
After a one-year absence in 2012, three steers were shown in 2013, and four are in the show this year, said Courtney Bauer, Nordheim ag teacher and FFA sponsor. In addition, there will be 17 goats, 11 lambs and eight hogs in the market show - numbers consistent with 2013.
This is the third year that goats are part of the show.
Animal judging begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at the school barn on the Nordheim campus, 500 N. Broadway St., according to a news release from event organizers. The premium auction begins at 2 p.m.
The Art, Food and Craft Show will be open to the public for viewing and sale at noon in the hallway of the main school building.
The grand champion and blue ribbon food, arts and crafts will be sold during the animal auction.
There will be a concession stand during the show sponsored by the Nordheim PTA. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Michael Leister Scholarship Fund.
Donations for the Nordheim FFA Fundraisers can be left at the Wells Fargo Bank or Sparky's in Nordheim.
An appreciation dinner sponsored by the Nordheim FFA Fundraisers will be at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 1 at the Nordheim Shooting Club Dining Hall.
