FORT WORTH – Sidney Love, a FFA member from Stephenville, captured Champion White/Other Purebred Barrow in Junior Barrows at the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Feb. 2.
The 2018 Show is hosting junior goat exhibitors from across Texas competing for awards and $25,590 in premiums.
Of the 33,000 entries at the nation’s longest-running livestock show, the livestock exhibited by the more than 11,500 junior exhibitors are among the best market animals in the country. While the livestock are impressive, one of the Show’s main objectives is to support the professional and leadership development efforts offered by the 4-H and FFAQ programs in Texas.
“The Stock Show serves as a nurturing point for these future business and civic leaders,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “This commitment is a founding principle of the Stock Show and we remain humbled with the number of Texas youth who choose to exhibit in the many events at the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.”
