On Jan. 21, 2018, Grady Creamer, a 4H member from Waxahachie, Texas, captured Reserve Champion Intermediate Heifer in the Junior Polled Hereford Breeding Beef Heifer Show at the 2018 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. The 2018 Show hosted junior cattle exhibitors from across Texas competing for awards and $36,210 in premiums.

Of the 33,000 entries at the nation’s longest-running livestock show, the livestock exhibited by the more than 11,500 junior exhibitors among the best market animals in the country. While the livestock was impressive, one of the Show’s main objectives was to support the professional and leadership development efforts offered by the 4-H and FFAQ programs in Texas.

“The Stock Show serves as a nurturing point for these future business and civic leaders,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “This commitment is a founding principle of the Stock Show, and we remain humbled with the number of Texas youth who choose to exhibit in the many events at the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.”

Elite rodeo action, top livestock and equestrian competition, and outstanding entertainment during 23 fun-filled days, Jan. 12 through Feb. 3, is what makes the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo the place to be.
