AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - The Market Animal Show in Augusta County has received a major donation toward its building campaign.

Augusta Petroleum just handed over a check for $100,000 to help the Market Animal Show build a couple of permanent structures at Augusta Expo.

The two structures will be near Expo's multipurpose building, and one will be for cattle, sheep, and goats and the other will be for hogs.

David Shiflett, who’s on the board of directors for the Market Animal Show, says it's time to get out from under the tents.

“If you've ever had livestock in tents when it rains, it's a mess,” Shiflett said. “So we really need a place where we can be inside. We need something that's going to be permanent for these kids and for their kids."

The buildings are expected to cost $1.5 million.
