NIXON -- Livestock shows often include competition among friends, but the Nixon-Smiley Livestock Show March 7-8 brought rivalry among siblings, too. Students from the Nixon-Smiley Consolidated Independent School District gave it their all as they exhibited everything from animals to crafts and ag mechanic projects to baked foods. The show also included the Clover Kids Pee Wee Showmanship round.

Seth Wynne led the way, exhibiting the grand champion steer. Seth is no stranger to the show ring. In the last two years, he has exhibited the grand champion broilers (2013) and the grand champion goat (2012-13).

Katheren Rawls defended her reserve champion steer title and also earned steer showmanship honors.

Cameron Boatright once again showed the grand champion commercial heifer, while Emma Lay showed the reserve champion heifer.

Emma also earned turkey showmanship honors.

Devon Warzecha once again exhibited chickens, this year taking the grand champion broilers title. Last year, he earned reserve champion honors.

Another repeat winner was Michael Shannon, who returned to defend his reserve champion goat title, earned for the second year in a row.

In a sibling rivalry, sisters Conley and Cameron Boatright led the swine division.

Conley’s entry was named the grand champion hog, while Cameron’s entry earned reserve champion status. Cameron returned to the winners’ circle by exhibiting the grand champion breeder hog. Conley also earned swine showmanship honors.

A.J. Trammell defended the grand champion fryer rabbits title, while Hannah Gordon’s entry earned the reserve champion fryer rabbits honor as well as grand champion market rabbits. Santos Pompa, the reserve champion market rabbits exhibitor, also earned showmanship honors.

Other grand champion awards went to William Hodge Jr., turkey; Danielle Long, lamb; and Kaytlin Tschoepe, goat.

See pictures pages 2D and 1E for more champions and honors awarded throughout the show.
