Henrietta FFA members earn Fort Worth scramble calves


Kandon Bennett, Garrett Tice, Laramie Dunn, Lindsey Crafton and Mikayla Collins — all members of the Henrietta FFA — were calf scramble winners in the Jan. 23 and Jan. 28 evening performances of the 119th annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Each winner received a $500 purchase certificate to be used in acquiring a registered beef or dairy heifer for their Supervised Agriculture Experience project, to exhibit at next year’s Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.

Kandon, the son of Paul and Kendra Bennett, is sponsored by Theo and Rachel Thompson of Fort Worth. Garrett is the son of Tim and Melinda Tice and sponsored by La Playa Maya Restaurants of Fort Worth. Laramie, daughter of Brandon and BJ Dunn, is sponsored by Whitney Penn LLP, Fort Worth. Lindsey, daughter of Shane and Valerie Crafton, is sponsored by William and Cynthia Wells of Burleson. Mikayla, daughter of Cody and Retta Collins, is sponsored by the Law Offices of William T. Fitzgerald of Ft. Worth.

The Calf Scramble, which allows 16 students to compete in 28 of the 29 rodeo performances, has eight winners each performance. The young people are high school students out to catch and halter a calf with hopes of winning a $500 purchase certificate that will help buy a registered beef or dairy heifer for a yearlong 4-H or FFA project.

Winners must care for their animals throughout the year and return for the 2016 stock show to exhibit it in the Junior Heifer Show. Those who do the best job will be in line for scholarship funds when they enter college. To date, the program has awarded more than $3.2 million toward the purchase of heifers and granted 1,143 scholarships totaling $1.6 million. In all, 224 youngsters will catch calves during the 2015 Stock Show.

All entries receive a special T-shirt with their contestant number. Participants who fail to catch a calf receive a certificate for a pair of Justin boots. Long time sponsor, Justin Boots continue their support along with Co-sponsor, Texas Mutual Insurance Co.
