Each student who catches a calf at the Houston Livestock Show™ is awarded a $1,750 certificate to purchase a registered beef heifer or market steer to show at the following Houston Livestock Show™. Returning as an exhibitor, the student shows in a special competition with other calf scramble and judging contest winners. The student receives a $500 bonus if program requirements are fulfilled throughout the year.
There are two components to the Calf Scramble program; donors and scramblers. One cannot work without the other. The donors are essential to continuing the program, which gives young students the chance to learn about agriculture and responsibility.
