Judge Cody Gallagher, of Ashdown, Arkansas, checks the birds for uniformity. Gallagher said entries in the Live Market Show must be four birds to a pen, all with similar attributes. The Buies, of Marshall, brought 24 Cornish Cross chickens to compete at the MSF. The birds will leave before the Fair begins, with the exclusion of the respective grand champion and reserve grand champion. FFA and 4-H Show Superintendent Lisa Evans said the birds are for meat purposes and will be sent home after judging because they do not tolerate heat well.
