Junior Market Auctions

The Spirit of Giving

From around the state of Texas, young people bring their livestock to vie for some of the most coveted titles in the animal industry, Houston Champion. After the competition, all the hard work and dedication, the animals parade around the auction ring in hopes of bringing home the world-record bid! Houstonians and Texans crowd into the NRG Arena Sales Pavilion around noon on auction days to grab a seat to bid on the year’s top-quality livestock. The benefits of the high prices reach not only the exhibitor, but also students across Texas through the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Educational Fund. Through set totals of guaranteed premium payments, the Show ensures a successful future for the exhibitor, while any excess money goes toward sending another student on to higher education. The spirit of giving is never in short supply.
