FFA Stock Show breeds winning results

by | Apr 15, 2021 | Latest

Several Sachse High School students picked up some of the top awards at the Garland ISD Livestock Show and Sale.

The event for Sachse FFA students was held April 8-10 at the GISD Agriculture Barn located at 2210 Pleasant Val­ley Road in Sachse for the first time. In the past, the stock show was held at the Curtis Caldwell Center in Garland.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person atten­dance was limited to student invitees only. The plant sale was canceled because of dam­age caused by the February winter storm.

This year’s show was live streamed via GRS-TV’s You­Tube Channel.

Garland ISD Agriculture Sci­ence teacher Justin Browne said of the participating SHS ag stu­dents, several qualified for auc­tion, offering students the op­portunity to sell their livestock in a special sale held April 10 after the stock show.

Showing the Grand Champi­on for Market Hog and Breed­ing Gilt was Lainey Hargrove of Rowlett High School. Lainey also picked up the Grand Cham­pion Hog Showman award. Re­serve Grand Champion Market Hog went to Cassy McEntee of Sachse High School. Bailey McEntee of Sachse High School won Reserve Grand Champion Breeding Gilt.
