The 14th annual Green County Master Showman Competition was held at the 2019 Green County Fair on Saturday, July 20th. This event brings in the top senior (grades 10 and above) showmen in the dairy, beef, sheep, swine, goats, rabbits and poultry departments at the fair. Two youth from dairy, beef, sheep, swine and goats are invited to participate, where only one youth is selected from the rabbit and poultry divisions.

During the event, twelve members from their respective 4-H Clubs and FFA Chapters show each animal species in a round-robin format. Youth are judged by qualified showmanship judges and members of the Agriculture industry from the surrounding communities. After six rotations of the event are completed, the scores are tallied and the member with the highest score earns the title of Green County Fair Master Showman.
