Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo
The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo has came and went! The last bit of results include the junior swine and the steer show.
The exhibitors in the junior market swine show were Lyndi Lutrull, Carson Read and Maley Mader. Lyndi and Carson did a fantastic job in the ring, but the tough competition kept them from placing. Maley did an outstanding job placing reserve champion in the White/Other pure-bred division.
In the steer show, the Wise County 4-Hers had another run of tough luck. The participants included Carson Read, Katie Claborn, Leah Guinn, Chase Blount, Michaela Cross and Blake Arrington. Each exhibitor did an excellent job with their showmanship while at Fort Worth.
San Antonio Livestock Show & Expo
The San Antonio Stock Show was a huge success this year for Aubrey Fortenberry and his 1966 WA-4 FWD Wagner Rice and Cane tractor.
Aubrey won second place in his class and followed up with the reserve champion title in his division. The showmanship award was also given to Aubrey, and was a huge reward for all the time and dedication he put into this project.
