Nixon-Smiley Consolidated Independent School District may be known as “Mustang Country,” but from March 7-9, the district can be known for its Nixon-Smiley Livestock Show, as exhibitors from 4-H and FFA clubs showed steers, poultry, rabbits, and swine.
First-time exhibitors, as well as experienced ones, brought their best work to step into the ring to show off the time and effort put into raising an animal or producing the works of their hands, such as crafts.
Old Chisholm Trail Drivers Queen Mariah Busselman stepped down from horseback riding to assist with the presentation of the trophies and more. No stranger to the livestock show ring, Karnes City FFA member Mariah is a member of the livestock judging team, and promotes the impact of agriculture to others.
