Braford and Gelvvieh breeds to our Junior Breeding Beef
Heifer Show and also adding a Junior Breeding Gilf

4-Her's and FFA members have worked countless hours on their
projects learning specific life skills such as
responsibility, time management and financial management. We
are proud to present their work to the city of Houston and
our show will forever encourage such growth in young people."
