Those unable to attend the 2020 Nebraska State Fair won’t have to miss a moment of the livestock shows thanks to a continuing partnership.
The Nebraska Rural Radio Association (NRRA) announced the continuation of a partnership with the Nebraska State Fair to provide livestream videos of the 4-H and FFA livestock shows.
The fair will take place Aug. 28 – Sep. 7, 2020. The 4-H Show will take place the first weekend (Aug. 20-30), and the FFA Show will take place the second weekend (Sept. 5-6).
In late June, the Nebraska State Fair Board decided to modify the fair due to health concerns. The decision prompted the NRRA to ensure viewers and listeners across the state could still watch Nebraska youth showcase their livestock.
The KRVN/Rural Radio Network video team will begin its livestream on Saturday, Aug. 29, beginning with the 4-H Beef Showman class at 10:00 AM.
The livestream is presented by Homestead Bank, with locations in Cozad, Lexington, St. Paul, Wolbach, Schuyler, Albion and Howells.
