The dust has settled and the weather is turning more and more like typical stock show weather and we couldn’t be more excited to share with you the 2014 Atascosa County Stock Show results for the Lytle FFA and Lytle Jr FFA!
The combined FFA and Jr. FFA competed with 4 goats, 6 pens of rabbits, 20 pigs, 1 pen of chickens and 62 individual agriculture mechanics projects.
In the rabbit show we had 4 4-H kiddos place and make sale and Lytle FFA was the ONLY school that all pens of rabbits made it in the show ring. Every other school had at least one pen DQ. Out of our 6 pens we had 2 place in showmanship! Trevor Miller placed 4th and Hailey Hughes placed 2nd in Senior Rabbit Showmanship.
In the poultry show, Trevor Miller was the 3rd place poultry showmanship winner of the senior division. While many might not realize, showmanship is a very hard and intimidating, optional part of show. This part is completely based off of our students knowledge of the species they are showing and how they work with the animal and not the quality of the animal. Some of the possible information they need to know is how/what to feed, what types of vaccinations/preventative medication, gestation periods and what identification methods are used with that species. This takes many hours of extra time studying about the species and working extra with their animal(s). Trevor has truly impressed myself this year with his hard work and dedication to both of his animal projects that he had this year.
Before the agriculture mechanics judging started, some of our students ag mech projects were photographed by the Pleasanton Newspaper and people were coming in just to see these projects! While we had 62 individual projects, some were grouped together to make a “larger” project. All of our projects entered received either a blue or red ribbon with many division winners. Many of these students had multiple projects and worked incredibly hard to finish before the stock show.

After the judging of the ag mechanics projects is completed, students are allowed to attach a for sale sign and sell the project. We had many be very successful in selling projects after the show. Many of the students were actually in fact so successful that they took orders for more projects! There is now a waiting list for metal projects from the Lytle FFA!
The FFA showed 19 pigs and made the sale with 5 of them!

Hailey Hughes was called back for swine showmanship. In addition, Kiersten Friesenhahn and Hailey Hughes competed in the swine skillathon competition and were in the top five of the Senior Division.
On Saturday, we ventured back to the show barn for the annual auction. While it was a VERY LONG day for all of those involved it proved to be an AMAZINGLY successful day for our kiddos that made the sale. Each of our students that made the auction will be receiving a very nice check in the next few months. L.A.S.S.O. was among the Platinum Buyers spending over $20,000 dollars on combined Lytle FFA, Jr. FFA and Lytle 4-H showers.
Thank you for all of your support to our hard working students. Many are not done and will be showing at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo this February!
