FORT WORTH – Stephenville FFA member Ryker Dale Wilson captured Reserve Champion Winter Heifer Calf with CHAC 5135 Claire 8299 in the Junior Polled Hereford Heifer Show at the 2020 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Jan. 27. 

The show is hosting junior heifer exhibitors from across Texas competing for awards and over $39,000 in premiums.

Of the nearly 15,000 junior livestock show entries at the nation’s longest-running livestock show, the junior division provides young men and women with the opportunity to earn scholarships, sale proceeds and premiums toward their educations, as well as toward the purchase of livestock to grow their own herds and genetic resources. Exhibitors come from 235 of the 254 counties in Texas, representing both 4-H and FFA clubs in their counties and schools.

 “The Stock Show has become a gathering place for premier competition and lucrative rewards for young stockmen,” said Stock Show President Brad Barnes. “We are committed to seeing that grow and providing a one-of-a-kind experience to our exhibitors when it comes to quality competition and pure Texas hospitality.”
