FORT WORTH -- East Central FFA steer exhibitors traveled to the Fort Worth Stock Show. The first Fort Worth Stock Show took place in March of 1896, on the banks of Marine Creek in North Fort Worth, making the Fort Worth Stock Show one of the oldest livestock shows in the country. Once known as the Texas Fat Stock Show, today this event is known as one of the most difficult shows in the country. A trio of East Central FFA exhibitors were named among the top 10 during the show held in late January and early February.

Kaitlyn Kempen exhibited the first-place Angus steer from the middleweight division. Kyle Hudek placed fifth with his exotic steer, while Wyatt Blaylock placed seventh with his American steer.

“This is truly one of the toughest in the country,” East Central steer exhibitor Alexis Wagner said. “People that attend this show have to not only have a great steer, but they also have to have great hair on their animals and there cannot be any room for error.”

While this was Alexis’s second year exhibiting at the Fort Worth Stock Show, 2012 marked Wyatt’s first year.

Wyatt had planned to attend with his father; however, his father was unable to attend. The breeder of Wyatt’s seventh-place steer originated from the herd of Ricky Neill, former Stockdale ag teacher.

“It was heartwarming to see everyone help Wyatt. The Hudek and Meek families chipped in to help Wyatt prepare his steer,” said Lorie Kempen, East Central High School ag teacher. “It was truly a community effort to get Wyatt to the ring!”

Initial stock show prizes consisted of gifts donated by Fort Worth area merchants. While this practice is no longer utilized, tremendous support from numerous breed associations, local Fort Worth businesses, and many volunteers assists in raising cash amounts for livestock premiums. Millions of dollars are awarded annually to livestock and rodeo champions and participants.
