Entries from both the open and junior shows, along with the horse show,
combine to make the Houston Livestock Show the largest event of its kind
in the world.
More than 16,000 entries, representing more than 1,000 Texas 4-H clubs
and FFA chapters, will compete in this year's junior show. A wide variety
of animals will be shown in both the junior and open divisions of the livestock
competition, including market steers, market barrows, market lambs, market
goats, market poultry, beef and dairy heifers, breeding gilts, breeding sheep,
dairy goats, llamas, commercial steers and breeding rabbits.
"The 2002 Houston Livestock Show will be an event exhibitors of all ages
will never forget as we hold the world's largest livestock show in Reliant
Hall one last time," said John Sykes, assistant general manager, Agricultural
Exhibits and Competition Department. "For 37 years, Reliant Hall has been
the place where generations of 4-H and FFA exhibitors have gathered for fellowship,
