Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

The N.C. State Fair Livestock Scholarship program awarded 33 scholarships this year for students to continue their education. Twenty-nine students received $2,000 scholarships that were funded through proceeds from the Junior Livestock Sale of Champions during the annual State Fair. Also, four students received $3,500 scholarships provided by sponsors. Any youth that participated in the junior livestock or market turkey shows were eligible to apply.
