Little AKSARBEN Friday, September 22, 2017

Friday, November 3rd will be the annual Little AKSARBEN show put on by Block and Bridle Club and the AKSARBEN Foundation. This is an excellent chance for showman to exhibit their skills and compete against peers here at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This is also a great chance for those who have little to no showing experience to learn some new skills, as there is a novice and experienced division in each livestock species. This year we will have swine, sheep, horses and cattle available to show.
