The Cornoavirus has taken a toll on Florida Fairs in many ways including 4-H and FFA Livestock Exhibitors. They work hard throughout the year raising steers, pigs, goats, lambs, plants etc to market at their local Fairs. Recently, those Fairs have had to close leaving these youth wondering what to do as many even have loans out for their projects .
Buyers and donors are needed to help these youth.
Fair boards across the State have and are working on solutions. This is the latest info.
