Ellis County student wins title (and cash) at Stock Show
Bailey Eubank, a 4-H member from Italy, exhibited a Shorthorn Reserve Grand Champion Female in the Jr. Breeding Beef Heifer Show at the 2008 Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show on Jan. 20. Junior show entries totaled 9,815 at this year’s show which ends February 3.
“The junior livestock show program provides youth with valuable lessons in life and business and builds a foundation that serves them long after their show years have passed,” said W.R. Watt Jr., president and manager of the show. “Our commitment to this program is a top priority.”
Winning exhibitors are awarded cash “premiums”–– this year to exceed $92,005 –– in addition to monies generated from the sale of animals in the show’s sale of champion steers, lambs, barrows and wether goats.
Besides record junior entries the show set an overall entry record of over 23,000 cattle, sheep, swine, horses, mules, donkeys, llamas, goats, poultry, pigeons and rabbits.
The Stock Show showcases the nation’s dynamic livestock industry to over 950,000 visitors mostly from the Metroplex and surrounding areas. Approximately 20 percent attend from other parts of the nation and 70 countries.
Besides livestock, the show includes educational exhibits designed to educate visitors on the livestock industry and provides 4 acres of shopping to suit most any taste.
Now in its 112th year, the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo features entertainment events for the entire family, including livestock shows, educational experiences and 30 exciting performances of the World’s Original Indoor Rodeo.
