Lee to attend Houston Livestock Show

The 2002 Houston Livestock Show marks the final year that 4-H and FFA youth exhibitors from across Texas will compete in Reliant Hall, and one 4-H exhibitor from Reeves County has entered to be there. The 2002 Show runs from Feb. 12-March 3 at Reliant Park.

Katie Lee, of Pecos, and a 4-H member will be attending the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

The junior show, which showcases the animal projects of these FFA and 4-H exhibitors, begins livestock competition on Friday, Feb. 22. Professional breeders and ranchers will compete for top prize money and global recognition in the livestock industry during the first 10 days of the Show, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 13.

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, friendship and competition. We look forward to continuing that tradition in the new Reliant Center in 2003."
