BC Ag Expo say they are looking forward to having their new sheep pens filled with 4-H member’s sheep in 2021.
The BC Ag Expo Society took delivery of 40 new sheep panels on Aug. 4, 2020, which was made possible by the BC Gaming Grants program.
“We gratefully acknowledge the financial assistance the Province of British Columbia has given to our Society. Our 2019 fair had a large increase of sheep entries and the new panels will make housing them much easier,” explained BC Ag Expo president Evelyn Pilatzke.
Unfortunately though, due to COVID-19, the pens will remain empty for 2020 as BC Ag Expo will be a virtual show and sale this year.
“Our volunteers have worked incredibly hard to revamp our show and sale so that we can still continue to offer a venue for the 4-H and Open Youth to compete and sell their projects for 2020,” said Pilatzke, “And all of our marvelous sponsors have continued to give their support to make sure that we are able to provide the show and online auction. Many members will be counting on the online auction proceeds to fund their next year’s projects, so it was really important that we were able to provide this opportunity to the 4-H members”
