Animals Check In at the Kleberg-Kenedy Junior Livestock Show

Posted: Updated:
KINGSVILLE (Kiii News) -

Organizers of the Kleberg-Kenedy County Junior Livestock Show said this year's event is going well. On Wednesday, they checked in and weighed in all of the animals.

Thursday began with the goat show, and they decided their grand champion and reserve champion goats. The majority of the day was devoted to the swine, judging the market swine and followed by swine showmanship. The organizers said the young folks have done an excellent job this year with their projects.

"It's a lot of hard work, about showing all these goats and lambs, because you have to work them, you have to brush them, you have to walk them," nine-year old Grant Garza said. "It's very hard."

"Just showing in general is just great because you learn," 15-year old Hailey Bull said. "So many experiences, you know? You get so many memories out if it."

The event wraps up Saturday with the start of the sale at 2 p.m. All of the residents of Kleberg and Kenedy counties are invited to come out and support the young men and women. They rely heavily on the support of the community for success.
