Livestock shows and rodeos are the bread and butter of traditional Texas 4-H. It’s not hard to understand why.
Youth involved in livestock projects develop skills that benefit them in school, at home, and on the job, becoming more dependable, confident, and qualified individuals. Backing this positive youth development is the fact that Texas is the number one state in total livestock shows, major livestock shows, prize money rewarded to youth, premium auction sales, youth participation, volunteer support, and scholarships provided.
