This is a great time of the year for a lot of Randall County students who have been working so hard. It is time for the 72nd Randall County Junior Livestock Show.

These young people have been raising their animals for competition and the time is here. Exhibitors put in the time every single day to feed, exercise, train, and care for their animals. Most use their prize money to offset the cost of their projects, buy new animals next year, or pay for college. There are a total of 247 students who have entered this year's show. The annual event is coming up this week from Tuesday - Saturday at the Happy State Bank Event Center - 1111 Loop 335.
