This show helps the kids prepare for the Bexar County Junior Livestock Show to help them make the auction.
The East Central Stock Show will be held Friday and Saturday, Dec. 16-17.

•Friday at 5 p.m. -- Kickoff of the show, with poultry judging at 6 p.m., followed by breeding goats, breeding sheep, breeding cattle, and market steers.
•Saturday at 7 a.m. --Check-in of all market and breeding rabbits.
All ag mechanics projects will be in place at 8 a.m.
Also, judging will begin of breeding swine, followed by market swine and rabbit showmanship.
Following the market swine judging, the show will continue with the judging of market goats and the market lambs. That will be the completion of the show.
The East Central Stock Show will be a lot of fun for the whole family! Kids will get to see many different animals and ag mechanics projects. There will also be a silent auction and a drawing.
