More than 1,500 kids from all over the state of Georgia are showing off their four legged friends at the Georgia National Fair.

The Junior Livestock Competition kicked off this weekend with the kids presenting everything from goats to pigs.

Sunday they showed of their cows and lambs. The animals were judged on their stance, how they listened to their handler, and their body makeup.

Kids competing in the show say dealing with animals helps teach them responsibility.

"Its just all about responsibility, when you are showing your lamb out there you can see if someone has worked with it or not," said one of the competitors, Davis Coleman.

Michele Treptow with the Georgia National Fair says the livestock show had over 5,000 entries.
