CLIFF-For the second year in a row the Grant County Cooperative Extension Service will host the Copper Classic Livestock Jackpot. The jackpot is a part of the Southwest Show Series (SWSS). The SWSS was put together by the county agents from the Southwest District. Participating counties are Dona Ana, Hidalgo, Luna, Sierra, Otero and Grant. The last and final stop on the jackpot tour will be held July 13, 2019 at the Grant County Fairgrounds in Cliff. Registration begins at 7:30 am on site. Early entries will be taken via email tfell@nmsu.edu or by phone 575-388-1559.

Youth from New Mexico and Arizona have been going to jackpots around the southwest this summer in hopes of ending up in the top of the point standings. At the conclusion of the jackpot an awards ceremony will be held and youth will be awarded with year-end high point prizes.

“Jackpot shows are a great way to get your kids and your show animals some practice in the show ring” said Grant County 4-H/Ag Agent Jessica Swapp.
