School Tour Guides

 The School Tours Program offers students a wonderful opportunity to practice the leadership skills that 4-H, FFA, and FCCLA strives to develop in our youth. We are looking for enthusiastic, responsible students in grades 9 -12 (Special exceptions can be made for deserving 8th grade students) to take part in this unique leadership opportunity. Your students will grow by being tour guides to younger children and by educating them on agriculture and its’ importance to our daily lives.

School Tour Guide dates:

San Antonio Rodeo: Feb 14-18th, 22nd, 23rd 

Austin Rodeo: March 21-25th

To sign-up contact the Extension office by Dec. 3rd.

 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
