Henrietta FFA member Corby Henry-Morrison competed Jan. 18 in the Junior Agricultural Mechanics Project Show at the 2015 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, winning first place in the bumper pull trailer division.
The show hosted more than 11,000 junior exhibitors, representing 237 Texas counties, competing for prizes and $126,970 in premiums.
Since 1896, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has remained a prominent event in the livestock industry. The nation’s oldest livestock show saw approximately 28,000 head of world-class livestock roll through “Cowtown” between Jan. 16- Feb. 7. 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,” said Bradford S. Barnes, President and General Manager of the Fort 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.”
The 119th edition of the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo offers visitors a chance to experience the unique western lifestyle along with a one-of-a-kind combination of history, tradition and Western heritage. For more information and results, visit www.fwssr.com.
