The nation's oldest livestock show will see nearly 22,000 head of world-class livestock roll through "Cowtown," between January 13th and February 4th. While the show is continually looking ahead, the focus on the livestock industry and our youth is unwavering.
"One of the show's main priorities is our commitment to the livestock industry and the agriculture leaders of tomorrow," states Bradford S. Barnes, President and General manager of the Ft. Worth Stock Show. "Junior exhibitors learn many valuable life lessons during their years of showing livestock, which will serve them well throughout their lives. Our show ensures a progressive future for agriculture by assisting in the development and education of 4-H and FFA students."
