A total of 114 exhibitors made it to the auction sale for the 2014 La Vernia Junior Livestock & Poultry Show. The overall sale ended with an estimated total of $415,335. The 57th annual show was held Feb. 27 through March 1, for students of La Vernia Independent School District, in either the 4-H or FFA clubs.

Earning grand champion honors was Mason Koepp, who was excited to get his first steer grand champion win.

Joining Mason in the winners’ circle were Ryan Rutkowski, rabbits; Brianna Woitaske, turkey; and Taylor Skrzycki, goat.

Other top winners included Braden Recker, who won his second broiler championship in a row; Virginia Moore, who, as a senior exhibitor, saved the best for last by taking the swine championship; and Makayla Matney, who told auctioneer Joey Tomlinson that this was her second time to get a lamb champion auction spot.

Exhibitors winning reserve champion banners included Meg Kravitz, who is keeping the broiler banner going for the family, as she received the identical placing last year.

Sophomore Zachary Heinsohn added another reserve champion goat banner to his collection.

Senior Kourtney Sells finished off her La Vernia show with two reserve championship honors with a steer and a hog.

Clayton Matney, who is also keeping it in the family, as his sister won reserve champion lamb honors last year, earned the 2014 reserve honor.

Emily Ramzinski added another turkey reserve champion banner to her collection.

Mariah Cook exhibited the reserve champion rabbits.

Champions for the baked foods show and crafts show included overall grand champion craft winner Maura Jones; Reagan Roswell won the reserve champion craft prize in the painting/drawing division.

The yeast bread category took the Best of Show in both the senior and junior divisions, with Ashley Frederick and Kourtney Leija winning these honors, respectively. Both Ashley and Kourtney will receive microwave ovens from Hoelscher’s Furniture in Floresville as part of their overall prize winnings.

The show’s baked foods/crafts auction, held Feb. 28, brought in a total of $21,410.
