Spencer Roberts, an FFA member from Leonard, received the Showmanship Award in the Junior Maine-Anjou Show at the 2011 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Jan. 23, 2011. The 2011 Show is proud to be hosting nearly 10,000 junior exhibitors from across Texas, competing for prizes and $91,585 in premiums.
Since 1896, the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo has remained a prominent figure in the livestock industry. The nation's oldest livestock show will see over 22,000 head of world-class livestock roll through "Cowtown" between Jan. 14 - Feb. 5. 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 a commitment to the livestock industry and the agriculture leaders of tomorrow," said a FWSSR executive. "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."
