JUNIOR MARKET GOAT CHAMPION SELECTED AT 2021 HOUSTON LIVESTOCK SHOW AND RODEO™
Junior Livestock Show exhibitors from across Texas showed off their projects during the 2021 Junior Market Goat Show at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. While the competitions were held as private events this year, the hard work and dedication from exhibitors still was on display as the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion goats were named during the Champion Selection on Sunday, March 7.
Trey Harbour, a member of Jonesboro FFA, exhibited the Grand Champion Goat, Doug. The 15-year old has been showing for seven years and is proud to follow in the family footsteps by competing at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
“It’s crossed three generations, my grandfather and my older brother showed here, too” he said.
Medina FFA member Cydney Newsom, and her goat Wilson, brought home the prize of Reserve Grand Champion.
“I’ve been showing longer than I can remember and have been competing in Houston since the third grade,” she said.
These champions, plus other exhibitors who qualify for auctions, will sell their projects at the 2021 Junior Market Lamb and Goat Auction. The auction will be held as a private event Saturday, May 15.
