January 29, 2018 Fort Worth – Ethan Zane Wood, a FFA member from Joaquin, Texas, captured Junior Heifer Champion in the Junior Simmental Beef Heifer Show at the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on January 21. The 2018 Show is hosting junior cattle exhibitors from across Texas competing for awards and $36,210 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.”
Elite rodeo action, top livestock and equestrian competition, and outstanding entertainment during 23 fun-filled days, January 12 through February 3, is what makes the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo the place to be.
