San Angelo Buyer's Club: The Legendary Stock Show Premium Sale Elite Eight


SAN ANGELO – Approximately 6,400 livestock exhibitors in four categories competed in February in the 2023 San Angelo Stock Show, one of four major Stock shows in Texas annually held in conjunction with top Rodeos.  Only 140, or about 2%, rose to the top and made the premium sale which makes the San Angelo Premium sale held Saturday in the Spur Arena one of the toughest and most elite sales a Texas exhibitor can strive to make.
