Local stock show set for January 17

The Friona Stock Show will be held Saturday, January 17 at the Friona Community Center. Weight cards for animals need to be turned in by 11 a.m. the day of the show.

This years judge will be Scotty Wright, Boys Ranch Ag Science Teacher. Wright was a member of the South Plains College and Texas Tech judging teams as he pursued his degree in Agriculture Education. He has raised show barrows and medium wool sheep and been very successful in producing quality show animals for FFA and 4-H members.

A showmanship clinic for the exhibitors will be held at 11 a.m. followed by a chopped brisket sandwich lunch at 12 p.m.

“The community is urged to come and eat lunch with us and attend the shows Saturday afternoon,” said Tracy Blount, FFA and Friona Ag Science instructor.

The heifer show will begin at 1 p.m. followed by the goat, lamb and barrow shows.

The FFA will also be hosting an adult showmanship contest for the community to take part in. Anyone can pay $10.00 to nominate a member of our community to show either a lamb or barrow. That person can meet the challenge and exhibit or pay $25.00 to get out of the nomination. Teachers, Administration, City Officials or any members of the community are all eligible to be nominated. Contact Mr. Blount with your nomination at the Ag Shop, 250-3072.

“We are looking to do something that will add to the stock show, increase attendance, raise funds for the FFA Chapter and at the same time provide some entertainment that we all can enjoy,” stated Blount.
