Show Dedication
When the Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show first started it was known simply as the “Kerrville Show”. From the humble beginnings of showing animals in the “open air” above what is now Antler Stadium, to its present location at the Hill Country Youth Event Center; this annual event has grown to represent 4-H and FFA members from across the state of Texas. There have been many changes over the previous 74 shows. The one thing that has not changed is the volunteer spirit. With deep roots in agriculture, volunteerism is alive and well at each show. The largest all volunteer livestock show in the state is represented by 2nd and 3rd generation directors who give unselfishly to make each show the biggest and best.
