104th Little International

Where Snider Ag Arena

The Penn State Chapter of the National Block and Bridle Club is proud to announce the 104th Little International, a Department of Animal Science tradition. The date is set for April 9, 2022, beginning at 8:00 a.m., with Opening Ceremonies in the Snider Agricultural Arena. On behalf of the Penn State Block and Bridle Club, the Show Committee would like to invite you to attend, as well as encourage your support of this annual event. Little International is a culmination of the club's activities, which focuses on members expanding their knowledge and experience within the livestock industry. As a club, we strive to provide interested students with an opportunity to gain valuable experience in handling one of the four species of livestock: cattle, sheep, swine, and horses. Prior to the show, Penn State livestock will be allocated to students via a random drawing. Exhibitors learn fitting and showing skills for their species through practice and hard work. On April 9th, the students will present their animals to be judged on showmanship and fitting skills.
