Como-Pickton FFA Excels at Ft. Worth Stock Show

 

From Michael Bowen

 

 

The first weekend of the 2016 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo was a productive one for the Como-Pickton FFA.  In the Junior Brown Swiss Dairy Show, Caden Anglin won the winter yearling class with Berretta, a Brown Swiss heifer bred by Overstreet Farms of Chillicothe, Texas. This was Caden’s first time to win a class at a major livestock show.

In the Agricultural Mechanics show, CP FFA students exhibited 4 projects, a decorative gate, a cattle trim chute, a 24ft gooseneck lowboy trailer and a cattle squeeze chute.  They earned three blue ribbons and a red ribbon with these projects.  The cattle squeeze chute also won the cattle handling equipment class and was named Livestock Equipment Division Champion.  For this achievement, the chute received a $1650 cash prize, a $1000 certificate from Big Tex Trailers, three welding machines, a metal cut saw, Victor cutting torch rig and an auto darkening welding hood.
