The 79th Annual Bandera County Junior Livestock show will be held Jan. 8-10, at the Mansfield Park Showbarn.
The county stock show is the culmination of many long hours, days, weeks and months of hard work put in by Bandera County 4-H and FFA members and their families.
The stock show program helps build "life skills" such as time management, record keeping, competition, sportsmanship, leadership skills and discipline, just to name a few.
This year there are over 544 entries in the show. 4-H and FFA members from all over the county are participating.
Everyone is encouraged to come out to the show and see some of the best livestock in the Hill Country.
Food and drinks will be available at the concession stand during the entire show and auction. Concession stand proceeds benefit the Bandera County 4-H program. Go out and enjoy a delicious hamburger, sausage wrap or frito pie and a great stock show.
The livestock auction will take place on Saturday following the Stock Show Award ceremony. Auction buyer registration will begin at 10:30 am. Anyone who would like to help support our local youth, contact the Bandera County Jr. Livestock Show Association at 830-796-7755.
