Floresville FFA excels at county show
Floresville High School students have concluded the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show and are moving forward into the major shows. The following is a list of some of the success from this year’s county show:
•Brandon Mutz exhibited the reserve grand champion hog. This is a special victory because it was a pig that Brandon and his dad raised.
•Payton Meuth received three honors -- reserve grand champion heifer; champion intermediate steer showmanship; and champion intermediate heifer showmanship
•Callie Baker -- champion senior swine showmanship award
•Bradley Meuth -- champion junior heifer showmanship award.
The Floresville High School exhibitors had several breed champions and breed reserve champions in all of the shows.
Maybe the most important stat was that 71 percent of the Floresville High School exhibitors made the auction sale. That is a pretty good number.
The Floresville High School High School ag department also wants to give a very big thank you to Dr. Sherri Bays, Floresville Independent School District interim superintendent, for coming out into the cold to announce the show on Jan. 23 and 24.
Also, Cade Burks showed a heifer Jan. 26 at the Fort Worth Stock Show, placing third in his class.
Congratulations to all of the show participants!
Editor’s note: Watch for the complete results coming soon in the Wilson County News’ Parade of Champions.
