FFA Advisor Joe Wallis and members of the Sloan-Hendrix Livestock Show Team left after school on Wednesday, March 30, 2011 headed to the Northeast Arkansas District Fair Grounds to attend the Annual Buffalo Island Spring Livestock Show. After arriving, members worked on setting up the equipment, feeding and bedding the cattle down for the night. On Thursday, some students spent time washing and grooming cattle, while other students exhibited rabbits and pigs. Friday, students braved the cold morning temperatures washing their cattle to get them ready to exhibit at the 8:00 am show. Thursday evening, several parents grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and Friday they had smoked brisket. Thank you to the ones that helped with the grilling or donated items.

Those exhibiting were: Cattle: Anthony Blissenbach, Jared Blissenbach, Emily Bilbrey, Breanna Gosha, Gus Gosha, Brody Hufsteddler, Chase King, Skyler Morris, Ashley Saylors, Hunter Stallings Rabbits: Samantha Buckwalter, Felica Buckwalter, Robin Buckwalter, and Pigs: Zeb Wilson.
