The last month has been a productive one for the Sulphur Springs FFA Show Team. Students have earned class and showmanship recognition at three different events.
Annie Horton competed in the West Texas State Fair in San Angelo with two of her lambs and placed second in two classes for one show, a third place, and a sixth in the other show ring, according to to Sulphur Springs High School FFA advisor John Holland.
Savannah Allen, Blaine Allen, Cash Vititow, Maurie Flecker, and Jace Mayers all took heifers to Four States and East Texas State Fair and Livestock Show in Texarkana, Arkansas. In addition to a few class winners at Four States, Savannah Allen won the Senior Showmanship class, Holland noted.
At the East Texas State Fair in Tyler, Cash Vititow won Reserve Grand Champion Red Brahman with his heifer. Savannah Allen placed first in her class with her Gray Brahman and she won the American Division Senior Showmanship at East Texas State Fair as well, according to Holland.
“All students did an amazing job with their animals especially since it was the first show for a few heifers and kids! We will have lambs, pigs and cattle at the State Fair of Texas over the next few weeks, so be on the look out for more information,” stated Holland.
