during June in Kremmling.

The 2017 Northwest Colorado Horse, Dog, and Livestock Expo is in the books! Each of the seven Northwest Colorado counties share the responsibility of putting on this large event by hosting every seven years in the second full week of June. 2017 was Grand County’s turn, and the staff at the CSU Extension Office are happy to report that the event was a great success.”

“Over 110 youth from across the seven counties, plus 2 more counties, participated in one or more of the following species categories: horse, dog, beef, swine, goat, sheep, rabbit, and/or poultry. Clinicians and various experts from around the state (including professors from Colorado State University) were called in to teach clinics and give seminars about proper showing, fitting, care, and selection of livestock, as well as topics like “How To”

“Be an Agrovate”. Each livestock species had at least one day of clinics followed by a species show, which included Showmanship, Market, and Breeding classes. The dog category had a similar structure, in which classes included Showmanship, Obedience, and Rally. Horse participants had two full days of clinics and speakers followed by a show of Showmanship, Horsemanship, and Barrel Racing.”
“CSU Extension in Grand County would like to thank the sponsors of this year’s event who made all the awards possible: Northwest Ranch Supply, Old Time Feed N Things, Colorado Pork Producers Council and Murdoch’s in both Fraser and Silverthorne. Next year’s Expo will be held in Jackson County in the second full week of June.”
