RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Farm Bureau says youth livestock shows are returning for the 2013 State Fair of Virginia.

Officials say the 4-H and Future Farmers of America youth livestock shows are set to take place during the fair in October.

The market and breeding shows for beef cattle, swine, sheep and meat goats will be open to all Virginia 4-H and FFA members. Winners will receive premiums and scholarships.

Last year, nearly 300 4-H and FFA members from 42 counties exhibited more than 900 livestock projects at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg.

The State Fair of Virginia is scheduled to run from Sept. 27 through Oct. 6 at The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County.

The Virginia Farm Bureau recently entered into an agreement to assume full ownership of the fair.
