It's animal showtime at the NEMO Fair

4-H and FFA students will be showing animals at the NEMO Fair all week long.

Sheep, cows and pigs...Oh My! With the NEMO Fair in Kirksville this week there will be rides, food, entertainment, and of course...animals.

Our cameras caught the first of the show animals getting settled-in at the NEMO Fairgrounds Monday afternoon.

Throughout fair week, 4-H and FFA students will be showing their farm animals and projects at various shows. The animals will be judged and get the chance to win awards.

For many kids, this is the time of the year all their hard work throughout the school year pays off.

The animal shows at the NEMO Fair kick off Tuesday with the sheep, lamb and poultry shows at 9 a.m. The rabbit and beef shows will take place Wednesday. The swine show is Thursday and the goat show will be at 10 a.m on Friday.

Then the premium livestock sale is scheduled for Saturday morning.

All shows will be taking place at the livestock arena.
