The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo officials are proud to report another phenomenal year for the annual event, according to a Feb. 26 stock show and rodeo press release. There were nine individual record-setting grounds attendance days that allowed patrons to enjoy all that makes the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo “more than an 8 second ride!”

Both livestock and horse show exhibitor numbers grew from last year’s totals and the AT&T Center Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rodeo and live entertainment attendance record was broken three times over the 18-day run.

Junior livestock auction sales remained strong as generous donors contributed to the continuing education of young exhibitors. The grand total for all junior livestock auctions set an all-time record of approximately $4 million.

The Western art auction also had a record-setting year with a grand total of more than $350,000 in sales that will be distributed in the form of scholarships awarded to the top 25 student artists.

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is a volunteer organization of more than 5,000 volunteers, emphasizing agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas.
