The 84th annual Schleicher County Livestock and Food Show was held Friday and Saturday, January 4th and 5th. In previous years the rabbit show was held on Saturday, but the show’s growing popularity led to increased participation and the show was moved to Friday night this year.

Silver buckles were given to the champion and reserve champion in each division. The buckles where donated by local businesses and individuals.

The event was put together by Schleicher County Extension Agent Laci Kennedy and EHS Ag teacher John Osbourne with the help of the county maintenance crew as well as 4-H and FFA volunteers.

The rabbit judge was Marvin Clark of Ozona while the sheep, steer, heifer, goat and swine judge was Patrick Padgett of Fredericksburg.

Things got underway at 8 a.m. on Saturday, with the food show and livestock show. The ever popular Little Britches Livestock Show, sponsored by 1st Community Federal Credit Union followed immediately after judging ended.

A delicious barbecue lunch was served, courtesy of First National Bank of Eldorado followed by the presentation of award buckles and the livestock show auction.
