Livestock producers are headed to Kearney this week for the Nebraska Cattlemen's Classic.

The annual seed stock show and sale got started today with horse related events like team penning and feedlot sort competitions.

NCC Manager Ronette Heinrich says they're putting an emphasis on the future of the industry this year with events like an FFA day and a prospect sale that doubles as a scholarship program.

"[We have] the collegiate 4-H and FFA livestock judging contest and we have youth making plans from all across the nation at the Classic, coming from Colorado, California, Idaho - they'll all be here at the Classic on Saturday and Sunday we'll wrap up with our junior show," says Heinrich.

Officials say that despite the tough year it's been for some producers, cattle sale numbers are up.

The show is also featuring more working dog demonstrations and displays.
