Karnes County stock show Jan. 17-19
Kelsey Moczygemba looks back for further instruction from her ag instructor while working with her steer entry. Watch Kelsey and other steer exhibitors Friday, Jan. 18, at 4 p.m. during the Karnes County Youth Show.
As Mother Nature provides much-needed rainfall to the parched lands in South Texas, this usually occurs with the start of the South Texas stock show season, and this year is no exception.
This week the road leads to Karnes County, when Karnes County youth will shine in the ring beginning Thursday, Jan. 17. The Karnes County Youth Show concludes with an auction, set for Saturday, Jan. 19, at 3 p.m.
The broiler show will begin the event in the Karnes County Youth Show Barn, located off U.S. 181, between Karnes City and Kenedy. The day’s events include judging of turkeys, followed by the lamb show and the goat show.
Judging of the handicraft show will be at 4 p.m. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to show their original crafting techniques, such as needlework, painting, drawing, general machine, wood crafts, and woodworking. Other categories include photography, welding, and a miscellaneous category that includes puzzles.
Judging of commercial steers kicks off Friday’s events at 8 a.m., followed by judging of food entries at 9:30 a.m. The day will also include the hog show at 10 a.m., followed by the breeding cattle show and the halter steer show.
The homemaking sale will be Friday at 6:30 p.m. Those seeking to purchase a cookbook containing more than 900 rosette-winning recipes may purchase the Karnes County Youth Show 25th Anniversary Cookbook for $30. The three-ring binder also includes the history of the Karnes County Youth Show.
Cookbooks will be sold at the show and are also available at the following: Barth’s Restaurant in Kenedy, Polak’s Sawsage Farm Restaurant in Karnes City, Alexander Auto Center in Kenedy, Connie Smart CPA in Runge, or the Wilson County News office in Floresville.
The profits from the cookbooks will be used for improvements to benefit the Homemaking Division, which likely would be the homemaking exhibit hall.
Saturday’s events include the homemaking awards presentation at noon and the buyers party at 1 p.m., followed by the auction at 3 p.m.
Prior to the auction, at 2:30 p.m., “The Friends of the Karnes County Youth Show” presentation and showmanship awards will take place.
See schedule for the complete listing of events for the Karnes County Youth Show.
The youth of Wilson County will have their opportunity to shine in the ring beginning Saturday, Jan. 19, with the horse show, beginning at noon.
The events pick up again on Wednesday, Jan. 23, and conclude Saturday, Jan. 26, with the Wilson County Junior Livestock & Baked Food Show Auction sale at 2 p.m. (See the Jan. 23 issue of the Wilson County News for complete schedule.)
The stock show season continues with two major shows in Fort Worth -- which end Feb. 9; and San Antonio, which runs from Thursday, Feb. 7, through Sunday, Feb. 24.
The final show within the county -- La Vernia -- is set for early March. The 56th annual La Vernia Junior Livestock & Poultry Show is planned for Friday and Saturday, March 1-2, in the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce grounds located off U.S. 87.
