SWEETWATER POULTRY SHOW
By Sweetwater Grange #727
Edgefield, South Carolina

Sweetwater Grange #727 based in Edgefield County, South Carolina hosted its first poultry show at the Edgefield Town Gym on Saturday March 7, 2015. A total of 350 birds were entered in the show, with 250 of those being Old English Game Bantams. Aside from the birds showing off their best, the club held a 50-50 drawing as well as a raffle of various feed and other poultry products that were all donated from local feed stores and businesses. The show was judged by Tom Kane of Virginia, and did a wonderful job! Our building and set up received many positive comments! We plan to host a double show in the fall, so BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR DETAILS IN THE COMING MONTHS AHEAD!!!
