The world of showing livestock can be best described as hours
and hours of demanding work followed by a few of the most important seconds of
a student’s life.
Students from the Eagle Pass FFA that participated got a feel for that experience this past week while participating in the San Antonio Livestock Show in San Antonio, Texas. The competition took place on February 10-13, 2014. Several students from both C.C. Winn High School and Eagle Pass High School traveled to San Antonio to compete in the Lamb and Goat Show.
Competition is extremely steep at this level and so we are very proud to announce that two students placed and made the sale in San Antonio. The San Antonio Stock Show is a unique event not only for its size but also because the revenue a student can earn is uncapped. Students will earn 100 percent of the money for their auctioned livestock, which will go toward his or her college scholarship fund. Students can also put some of their earnings toward raising next year’s crop of livestock. The San Antonio Stock Show itself has grown to be one of the largest and most prestigious single events in San Antonio and one of the toughest showing competitions in the state.
Placing 4th with her crossbred lamb was Linda Molina and placing 5th with his Medium wool lamb was Zack Molina.
Other EPISD student contestants included Orlando Nava, Jonathan Nava, Brigido Samaniego, Mano Samaniego, Gerardo Molina, and Arturo Molina who all competed with lambs. Jessica de la Garza competed showing her goat.
With over 1500 sheep showing up this is an impressive accomplishment for both of these students.
