The 61st Annual Brazos County Youth Livestock Show Auction was held on Saturday, April 8 at the Brazos County Expo Center. Many of the youth from Brazos County participate in 4-H and FFA with different projects, such as family and consumer sciences, market rabbits, market steers and more.
SSC supported this event by purchasing a pen of three chickens exhibited by Hayden Bennett. Hayden had the 7th place pen of chickens. He was also Intermediate Reserve Champion in showmanship. Showmanship is based on the kid’s knowledge of his/her project. Way to go Hayden!
In addition to purchasing this pen of chickens, SSC was able to add on to other exhibitors who did not make sale. The money that these kids receive from the sale of their projects or the add-on money that they receive typically is used to purchase next year’s projects or to help fund their post-high school education.
