We are in the last-week stretch of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. The market steers and barrows are in the barns, and the educational exhibits for adults and youth are still in full swing.
Also, there is a rumor that you can score some deals in the Exhibit Hall from all the vendors on the last weekend.
This week’s results include the heifer show. There were five Wise County 4-H youth showing and each did a wonderful job. Ryan Holaway’s Maine Anjou heifer was a division champion. Aubrey Fortenberry’s Hereford heifer placed second. Sheridan Shallene’s Angus heifer came in at fourth place. Michaela Cross’s Santa Gertrudis heifer was in full spirit as she placed ninth. Katie Claborn’s Angus heifer also came in ninth place.
Great job Wise County 4-H’ers.
