LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Thousands of spectators are expected to gather at the Comanche County Fairgrounds over the weekend for the Great Plains Winter National Pig and Lamb Show.

About 600 exhibitors from between the ages 5 and 18 will get the chance to show off their livestock in the ring before a group of judges. Exhibitors can reap all sorts of awards for their hard work, including a $750 prize. But one lucky participant will win this year's new award, the Premier Swine Exhibitor Award, which comes with a $2,500 Cimarron aluminum popper trailer. 

"They take these projects on and it teaches them dependability and responsibility, and they get up every morning and feed these animals before they go to school, and take care of them when they get home," Robert Spencer, co-chairman of the Great Plains Winter National Pig and Lamb Show, said.

Exhibitors are not only from Southwest Oklahoma, they will also come from other parts of the state and some from Texas.

The show takes place at the Comanche County Fairgrounds in the Expo Center. The lamb show starts at 7 p.m. Friday and the hog show will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. There's a $25 entry fee per animal, per ring.
