The new entry deadline to the Livestock Division of Texas Rice Festival will be deliver them to the office or mail them postmarked on or before September 25, 2017 for your livestock entries. Normal flake shaving will be allowed by exhibitors everywhere including inside the rodeo arena. Unfortunately no pellets or powdered shaving will be allowed to be used by those exhibitors stalled inside the rodeo arena. The new covered arena was approved by commissioners court and we have began the planning process.
Please make plans to attend the Texas Rice Festival Livestock Show. We need and look forward to your participation. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for the youth of Southeast Texas to exhibit Ag projects and skills. We will promote friendly competition.
This show is open to all boys and girls in the FFA and 4-H that are presently enrolled in primary or secondary schools in Texas. Animals must be entered under your individual club name.
Exhibitors must have personally owned, fed and cared for their animals under the direct supervision of a county extension agent, vocational agricultural teacher, or a 4-H leader.
