It’s almost here: The 59th La Vernia Junior Livestock and Poultry Show. Events are Thursday through Saturday, March 3-5, at the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce grounds, located at 12301 U.S. 87 W. in La Vernia.
Members of the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce, Stock Show, Buyer’s Pool, and Auction Sales Committees have been putting together final preparations to ensure another great show and sale for La Vernia FFA and 4-H exhibitors.
The committees would like to extend this welcome as an invitation to everyone in the community to assist local youth; no special letter of invitation is needed. It is the committee members’ hope that new businesses or individuals that would like to assist will come and join us next weekend, making this annual event even bigger and better.
There will be plenty of food and beverage booths, as well as vendors displaying arts and crafts and other items.
Judging events start off on March 3 with rabbits at 5 p.m.
Judging continues on Friday morning at 8 a.m. with turkeys, followed by broilers, lambs, and goats. The afternoon events include the judging of steers, followed by heifers at 2 p.m. Swine judging gets under way at 6 p.m.
Crafts, baked foods
Crafts and baked foods projects are judged Friday morning, with their auction held at 4 p.m. in the show arena. Signup for the baked foods and crafts auction buyers is prior to the auction.
Add-on sheets will be available March 5 in the hospitality building and buyer’s pool booth starting at 10 a.m. The animal and poultry auction sale gets under way at noon.
As per past years, buyer’s pool and auction sales committee members are working to ensure that all exhibitors are given a fair and equitable price for their projects. Some lower prices are adjusted following auction to assist toward a fair amount for all La Vernia stock show exhibitors. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Buyer’s Pool may visit the booth at the show or send their contribution to La Vernia Buyer’s Pool, P.O. Box 788, La Vernia, TX 78121.
All donations are appreciated by the auction winners and members of the chamber show committees. Your support and commitment to the youth of today secures better leadership for tomorrow’s future.
