 Major Steer and Heifer Validation

We will be holding Steer and Heifer Validation on two different dates again this year. I do want to remind everyone of the new rule that animals must be state validated to show at the county show. If you have not already ordered your tags for your steers, please contact me ASAP so we can get you on the list and make accommodations to get your animal validated for this show year. 

The first one will be held on Saturday June 19th from 8-11 at the Cox's Ranch
Address: 9284 FM 150, Driftwood, Tx 78619

The second one will be held on Wednesday June 30th from 5-7 at the Krackau's Ranch

Families who show heifers do be aware that this is only the first validation of the year, so do not worry if you do not have a heifer yet as we will have another validation in October. This is a question I get every year so I thought I would go ahead an mention it now.

If there are any other question please feel free to contact me by email,, or by phone at 512-393-2120

HCYLS changes

 Attention HCLE exhibitors!!!!

Wanted to inform everyone that the 2021 Hays County Youth Livestock Show schedule is being adjusted to allow for the mandatory social distancing. The exact schedule has not been approved but know that we will likely be spreading the show out throughout the entire week. Stay tuned for the exact times of your project check-in. We will not be having everything check-in at once as in the past. Shows are being scattered to assist in limiting the number of people at the facility at one specific time. 

More information to come so please watch out for updates. As soon as the schedule is approved and finalized we will post the new HCLE schedule here.
