Lowndes County - South Georgia youngsters are showcasing their prize pigs.
One hundred and thirty-three students from Lowndes, Lanier and Echols are taking part in the Lowndes Area Market Hog Show and Sale. The hogs were judged on their weight and showmanship Tuesday night and will be auctioned off Wednesday night.
Preparing for this compeition takes a lot of hard work and dedication. "You have to feed and water them every day, you have to have a certain amount, and you have to walk them every day like a routine," said Derrik McLeod.
The event is being held at the Lowndes County Civic Center.
