Victoria Livestock Show 2014
It’s time for the 2014 Victoria Livestock Show! It would take way too long to list all of the events at the Livestock Show, so, instead, here’s a little history. In 1946, show was originally founded by the Victoria Jaycees, but two organizations, the Jaycees and the Victoria Livestock Show Association, handled different aspects of the event. In 2012, the two organizations came together to form the Victoria Fair Association Inc.
This year marks the 68th year of the Victoria Livestock Show founded by the Victoria Jaycees. It is the largest event held in Victoria and surrounding counties each year with over 14,000 visitors annually. It is one of the few remaining livestock shows where 100% of the proceeds from each animal sold at the auction is paid to the 4-H/FFA Junior Exhibitors.
The mission of the Victoria Livestock Show is to provide an opportunity for the youth of Victoria County to exhibit their 4-H and FFA projects, developing agricultural knowledge and leadership skills.
A past volunteer’s quote constantly reminds each of us “The Show is for the Kids!”. Let’s all get out and support the youth of Victoria at this year’s Victoria Livestock Show!!
