McLennan County Livestock Show 2015

Thirty students from Methodist Children’s Home (MCH) FFA chapter competed in the 2015 McLennan County Livestock Show Feb. 2-6 at Extraco Events Center in Waco. Out of the 30, only three students had ever shown an animal in a show before.

“This is the largest group of students that we have taken to a show since I have been an ag teacher here,” said Steve Kruse, Ag teacher. “It also was the most inexperienced group of kids with so many first time showman. The teacher in me is extremely proud of what the students have learned and how they represented Methodist Children’s Home.”

MCH entered two steers, one heifer, seven goats, six lambs and 14 pigs into the livestock show. One first-year FFA student, Ema, received Reserve Breed Champion for her Southdown lamb.
