Stock dog trials to be featured at Ag Expo
A new special event takes place at Ag Expo this year. The Southern Stock Dog Association will sponsor a day of trials beginning at 9 a.m. Jan. 20. This competition is about how well stock dogs, mostly Border Collies, herd cattle in response to hand and voice commands by their master. The event will be held in the West Livestock Arena at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe.
Ag Expo 2012, scheduled for Jan. 20 and 21, will feature the newest products and services for agriculture producers and businesses, plus educational displays and programs for all ages. The newest technologies, from a portable sawmill to row crop equipment to animal health and more will be demonstrated.
