SAN ANGELO, TX – The San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo is one of the biggest in Texas and one of the reasons why is the Livestock shows.
From breeding livestock to chicken, you can see the majority of your barnyard animals right inside the San Angelo fair grounds. One of the most popular shows of the season is the pig show.
This year winner of the Junior Market Barrow show is scheduled to make more than $10,000 so the competition heated up as soon as the pigs walked into the show arena.
"You're stepping into the ring and it's showtime," said Jacee Vanderbeck of Glen Rose FFA. "Then you just keep your eye on the judge and walk the pig to the best of your ability."
The first classification of pigs started with the Hampshire followed by the Light Crossbred and Dark Crossbred on February 13. The show finished up on February 14 with the Duroc, Berkshire, Yorkshire, LOPB, and DOPB.
Lanie Cook from Lynn County 4-H got second in the Lightweight Hampshire class and will be making it to the premium sale Saturday. She says that hard work, dedication, and whole lot of feeding was the main reason for her success in this year's San Angelo Live Stock Show.
"I've learned that no matter how much you know, you can always learn something new." said Cook when asked a life lesson she has learned this year's stock show season.
The Grand Drive will be going on Thursday after the conclusion of the Yorkshire show.
