As this week comes to an end, we reflect on what a wonderful week it has been. With the challenges this week and certainly the past year has brought us we are glad that we were able to have a successful Kerr County Show. We missed our District friends and cannot wait to join with them again in the barn!
 
We are forever grateful for our community who came together last night to support our Kerr County kids for their hard work, perseverance, and determination when we were not sure what this year would hold. Thank you to each of you that came to the auction, purchased Add On’s online, gave your support and encouraged an exhibitor. Thank you to our volunteers, sponsors, friends, and family who helped pull this show off.
 
Our auction ended strong last night at almost 1.1 Million. We will be taking Add On’s through January 31st. Please visit our website at www.hcdjls.org and click on the link Add On Money.
 
See you all in 2022!
 
 
HCDJLSA Press Release
For Immediate Release
 
Subject:  State Determines That Mass Gatherings Not Be Held
 
The Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show Association has been working diligently since early in the fall to re-structure our county and district stock shows, in order to meet the requirements for mass gatherings.   On December 21st, the Texas Department of State Health Services recommended that mass gatherings not be held. 
 
According to President Steve Bauer, “We believed we had a solid plan in place, but due to the expectation of increased Covid-19 cases, the state official responsible for approving our mass gathering application did not approve it.  This leaves us feeling both disappointed and frustrated; however, we always knew that there was a possibility that this could happen.  As a result, we will be canceling the 2021 Hill Country District Livestock Show.  We will be back in 2022, stronger than ever!  Fortunately, with some restructuring, we will not have to cancel the county show – we will still have a Kerr County Show followed by a premium sale.”
 
What does this mean for our exhibitors?
If you are a Kerr County exhibitor, watch the web page and social media for updates.  Additionally, your Extension Office and your Ag Science teachers will have updated information.
 
If you are a district (or state-wide) exhibitor, your county 4-H office or FFA chapter will be issued a refund check for all entry fees.  It will be their responsibility to refund the entry fees to the individual exhibitors.
 
Again, the Executive Board is not at all happy to have to do this.  However, it is most important to protect the health of our exhibitors, families, and volunteers in this time of the pandemic.
 
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have, and please plan on being here in 2022!
