Ventura County Fairgrounds to Break Ground on New Livestock Center

The center will serve as a year-round venue for shows and competitions

The Ventura County Fairgrounds will break ground Thursday on a new livestock center.

Construction of the Judge William P. Clark Livestock Center is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2012 Ventura County Fair, Aug. 1-12.

The livestock center will dramatically enrich the diversity of programs offered at the fairgrounds, including those of the Ventura County Fair. It will serve the community as a venue for year-round livestock shows and competitions and will be used during the annual Ventura County Fair by members of 4-H Clubs, the Future Farmers of America, Junior Grange and independent livestock exhibitors.

More than 75 years old, this site remains one of the more popular and educational venues at the fair.

The Ventura County Fairgrounds thanks the following partners, without whom this project would not be possible: Farm Credit West, the California Fairs Financing Authority, the Division of Fairs & Expositions and the California Fair Services Authority.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
