Cameras Added to Help Stream State Fair Livestock Shows


GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) -- Additional cameras have been added to live stream livestock shows at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island.

The three additional cameras will allow all the fair arenas to be viewed via streaming video on the Internet.

The video will show the Swine Arena, the Five Points Bank Arena and the Sheep Barn Arena.

Joseph McDermott, executive director of the Nebraska State Fair, says the camera additions are a result of streaming video being so popular during last year's fair.

A schedule of live streaming events is available on the fair's website. The Nebraska State Fair is scheduled to run from Friday through Sept. 2.
