The 2014 Parker County Youth Livestock Show, sponsored by the Parker County Livestock Improvement Association, begins June 9 and runs through June 13.
Participants from the area 4-H and FFA programs will exhibit quality livestock and crops at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse rodeo grounds. They will also get a chance to sell their livestock and crops raised or ag mechanics they fabricated. Proceeds go toward the reimbursement of the cost of raising the animals or crops, as well as next year’s exhibits.
Anyone is welcome to attend the sale, and can put funds on an exhibit at the time of the auction. Potential buyers do not have to be present at the time of auction and can contact the PCLIA to contribute.
The livestock shows have been successful, raising more than $400,000 in sales in recent years.
“A huge thank you to those that have supported the kids of Parker County in the past and that plan on continuing that support, especially those local businesses that show up every year and go above and beyond,” PCLIA president Dan McIntosh said. “Without supporters like you in our community, the PCLIA and its entirety wouldn’t be able to see it’s dreams come true. Thank you for your non-wavering support.”
