WBBZ-TV Partners with the Erie County Agricultural Society for
WNY Youth in AG Bonanza in Hamburg, New York

Following the announcement of many pandemic related cancellations across the region, including the Erie County Fair, the Erie County Agricultural Society (ECAS) announced the “Western New York Youth in Ag Bonanza” program.

This “reduced spectator” series of livestock and animal shows will take place on the Erie County Fairgrounds over the course of three weekends in August – (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 8/6-8/8 … 8/13-8/15 … 8/20-8/22).

The goal of the program is to provide youth, who have limited opportunities this summer to show and compete with their animals, a venue to keep the Ag community growing during 2020. This event will not be open to the public but only for competitors and their immediate families, but with live streaming opportunities.

Despite changes to summer traditions, the ECAS is committed to the youth of Western New York State who have worked for months with their animals,” said Jessica Underberg, CEO of the Erie County Agricultural Society.

“Children involved in agriculture have invested their hearts, minds and financial resources into these youth development projects. It is our goal that the “WNY Youth in Ag Bonanza” will provide a hands-on learning experience that will continue to develop and recognize these hard-working children for their efforts.”

The show will take place in the designated agricultural zones on the Fairgrounds and will be open to all youth competitors from eight Western New York Counties. These include Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Genesee, Orleans, Niagara and Wyoming. Competitors will be able to compete in livestock judging and showmanship in various categories that include dogs, horses, dairy cattle, dairy goats, poultry, rabbits, beef cattle, llamas, swine and sheep.

Open to Youth in Agriculture in the 8 WNY Counties


11 Shows

Beef Cattle
Dairy Cattle
Dairy Goats
Meat Goats

To facilitate this event in a safe environment, the Erie County Agricultural Society has developed a comprehensive plan based on current COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the CDC and other health organizations.

Masks will be required (except for when exhibitors are in the show ring)
Limit to 10 animals in the ring at one time to ensure 6-foot social distancing
Stalling animals with appropriate space between each family
Only exhibitor and immediate family allowed on the property
Not open to the public

This event is geared towards the youth, ages 4-21, in the eight Western New York counties that do not have a Fair that they originally planned to show at when they purchased their animals earlier in the year.

COVID-19 has changed many of the available opportunities for these youth and the Erie County Agricultural Society found it important to provide an event for them.

Youth livestock shows historically provide social interaction, character and responsibility
