Courtney Flach, 4-H member from Bandera County, exhibited the first place Dorper lamb in the Junior Wether Lamb Show at the 2015 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Jan. 31.
Flach, a senior at Bandera High School has been a very active member of the local 4H clubs for eight years. She plans to attend South Plains College in Levelland.
She is the daughter of Melinda and Glen Flach.
The 2015 Show hosted over 11,000 junior exhibitors, representing 237 counties across the State of Texas, competing for prizes and $126,970.00 in premiums.
Since 1896, the Fort Worth show 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 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."
