The Mission of the Southwest District Livestock Show, Inc. is to foster opportunities for 4-H and FFA youth from across a seven parish area to develop life skills through raising and exhibiting livestock projects.  Area youth gain knowledge and skills such as responsibility, communication, record keeping, and leadership through this process.  The Southwest District Livestock show supports these area youth with scholarships, awards, and prize premium monies to encourage participation - awarding over $75,000 annually to participants in these activities. Each year, more than 1,800 youth participate, exhibiting over 3,000 head of livestock.
