As the new year gets under way, so does the South Texas stock show season. The Bexar County Junior Livestock Show concluded its show with an auction Jan. 8. This week, Karnes County youth will shine in the ring beginning Thursday, Jan. 13. The Karnes County Youth Show concludes with an auction, set for Saturday, Jan. 15, at 3 p.m.

The broiler show will begin the event in the Karnes County Youth Show Barn, located off U.S. 181, between Karnes City and Kenedy. The day’s events include judging of turkeys, followed by the lamb show and the goat show.

New this year is a handicraft show that will be judged at 4 p.m. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to exhibit their original crafting techniques, such as needlework, painting, drawing, general machine, wood crafts, and woodworking. Other categories include photography, welding, and a miscellaneous category that includes puzzles.

Judging of commercial steers kicks off Friday’s events at 8 a.m. The day will also include the hog show, the breeding cattle show, and the halter steer show.

The homemaking sale will be Friday at 7 p.m.

Saturday’s events include the homemaking awards presentation at noon and the buyers party at 1 p.m., prior to the auction at 3 p.m.
