Ag show in Clifton, Texas

On Saturday, Oct. 25, eight youth from the Waco campus and Boys Ranch participated in the Crawford FFA show in Clifton, Texas. Stephen Kruse, agricultural sciences (ag) teacher, and James Fairchild, assistant ag teacher, were proud of the youths’ hard work. Although many of the youth and goats were still in need of more training to be show-ready, they gained valuable experience and showed great potential during the event. 

“This was the first time any of the youth had ever attended a goat show and we placed four out of six goats,” explained Kruse. “In the heifer show, Star has emerged as one of those youth that can handle and show any species of livestock. Mikayla showed a calf for the first time and did a good job. I feel that this was one of those shows the youth may have learned the most.”

Below are the results from the Crawford show:

Class two exotic heifers – Star, 5th place
Class three exotic heifers – Mikayla, 2nd place
Class 1 lightweight goats – Chris, 4th place
Class 1 lightweight goats – Tamika participated
Class 3 lightweight goats – Abby participated
Class 5 middleweight goats –Ladarius, 3rd place
Class 6 middleweight goats –Alex, 5th place; Kiyanna, 6th place
