Training the next generation of young livestock exhibitors
NACOGDOCHES -- The East Texas Show Star Series is set for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 22-23, in the Nacogdoches County Expo Center located at 3805 N.W. Stallings Drive in Nacogdoches. The purpose of the weekend event is to educate youth new to showing livestock, especially those just starting out showing steers, heifers, lambs, and goats. Sign-in begins Saturday at 8 a.m.
To prevent parents from having to absorb the cost of expensive mistakes, a group of East Texas AgriLife Extension agents started the first show series three years ago.
The registration fee for each youth contestant is $50. The fee for an accompanying brother or sister is $40. For attending parents, guardians, or agriculture teachers, the fee is $30. The fee covers everything, including lunch and supper on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday, and the use of stalls and lighted outdoor corrals.
Registration may be done online by going to https://agriliferegister.tamu.edu/ and entering “star” in the keyword search box.
For more information, call 903-683-5416 or e-mail email@example.com.
