It's livestock week! Students have been preparing all year long for the Nueces County Junior Livestock Show this week.

Calallen students joined Sarah Acosta live for 3 News First Edition at the high school's agriculture science barn.

Calallen provides a barn for students of all grades to keep their livestock and with their agriculture science program teaches them how to care for their animals.

Students from all over Nueces County will compete in a variety of events, from homemaking to raising steers in this week's livestock show at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds in Robstown.
