FLORESVILLE -- Two men -- one a county agent, another a peanut farmer -- are credited for the formation of the poultry show held during the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show. Vernor Bippert and Jerome Flieller were honored Jan. 27, for a combined total of 94 years of service and dedication to the livestock show.

Both men received plaques that read, “In appreciation for 47 years of service and dedication to the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show.”

Vernor Bippert

Bippert began his 22-year term serving as the Wilson County Extension Agent-Agriculture in 1964. The following year, he started with the Wilson County Livestock Show Association, according to Bob Baker, show manager of the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show.

Although Bippert retired as a county agent in 1986, he continues to serve as a director of the Wilson County Livestock Show Association -- the governing body of the county livestock show. Anyone who attends the poultry show will recognize his voice as he continues to serve as one of the announcers during the poultry show.

Jerome Flieller

Flieller also started with the livestock show in 1965, and has served as superintendent of the poultry show. He remains active in the show today.

Since his health has prohibited his participation in the show ring, Flieller has relinquished this duty to his son, John. To this day, [Jerome] Flieller is listed as the superintendent, Baker said.

This was not the first honor bestowed on Flieller. In 2005, he was honored by the Wilson County Show Barn Committee for 36 years of service. He was the last active member of the original committee when he received the honor.

The honors bestowed on these two men were the first the county show directors have presented in more than 15 years, Baker said.

Also receiving recognition was Jay Faktor, honored for his service and dedication by the parents and youth he assists. See related article, this page.
