Description:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to assist Edgecombe County with developing the Eastern North Carolina Livestock Arena & Education Center. This new facility will replace the old livestock arena that was severely damaged during Hurricane Floyd and provide a market for livestock owners in 25 eastern NC counties. The project will provide a new market for cattle owners to market livestock through state graded sales, support livestock shows/sales for 4-H youth, and provide training, marketing, and shows for area producers of value added products. The county has raised more than $1.6 million to construct the barns, show arena and conference center. Golden LEAF funds will be used to purchase equipment, supplies, and furnishings for the facility and to complete site preparation.
