"I am excited and honored to be hired as your new Chairman of Livestock for the Arkansas State Fair. I've always had a love for animals, people and the state of Arkansas, and this position brings those passions together perfectly. My goal is to make the State Fair Livestock Show the best that it can be, ensuring a positive experience for the youth, their families and friends, and the agriculture leaders throughout the state.

I believe there is no better industry for the youth of Arkansas. Livestock shows are the reward for all of the hard work that is put in at home or school. It’s important to me that they are celebrated and supported at a show that is fun, organized and fair.

I’m looking forward to getting to know and work with every person associated with the fair. Let’s get ready for a great 2019 Arkansas State Fair Livestock Show."- Dawn Mabry
