FFA Students Place at San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo

March 2, 2011 by Anonymous

Last week the Weatherford FFA traveled to the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo to exhibit their market swine projects. Mason Castner, Tyra Brunz, Rachel Bedinger, Jake Calloway, Carson Terrell, Christin Gasca, Cooper Bench, and Shelby Morgan have all been working hard on their projects since last October.

For Rachel and Jake, that hard work payed off. Jake placed ninth in his cross class that had 75 entries in it and Rachel placed third out of 46 entries in her Duroc class making the premium sale with Red Dawg, her Duroc barrow, on Saturady afternoon.

It is that time of year for FFA students at Weatherford to begin purchasing their swine projects for the Parker County Livestock Show that will take place in June. Raising show pigs teaches students good work ethic, patience, dedication, and pride.

If you have any questions concerning show pigs or you are interested in showing one, contact Aaron Baker at Weatherford High School.FFA: Jake Calloway (left) and Rachel Bedinger (courtesy photo).
