San Antonio –The calf scramble was held yesterday, February 13 at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.
4-H and FFA youth competed for $800 certificates to purchase breeding animals to exhibit in the 2014 San Antonio Junior Livestock Show. Twelve certificates were awarded this afternoon to those who caught a calf.
One such winner was Kirsten Shaw of Mason, Texas. Shaw is 17 years old and she enjoys playing softball, livestock judging and being active in 4H and FFA. With her earnings from tonight’s performance, she would like to purchase a breeding Hereford heifer.
In pursuit of its mission “Helping Youth Today So That Agriculture Can Grow Tomorrow,” the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has committed more than $123 million to youth education since 1984.
