Livestock show sale breaks last year’s record
This year, the Uvalde County Junior Livestock Show and Sale celebrated two milestones: 80 years of supporting youth in agriculture and a record-breaking sale total of $679,625.
This year’s stock show was the accomplishment of countless volunteers, students, and families. The three-day event ended Saturday with the auction. Parents and grandparents glowed with pride while buyers spent $64,556 more during this year’s auction than last year.
There was also an uptick in total projects sold, 198 entries for 2019, up from 184 in 2018. This year, 222 students entered 685 projects. Baylee Grissom’s grand champion steer was this year’s top earner, selling for $16,200 to Briscoe Ranch Inc., First State Bank of Uvalde, Chaparrosa Ranch and Holt Cat.
