Annual Bandera County Junior Livestock Show

Date: Jan 11 - Jan 14, 2023
The Bandera County Jr. Livestock Show provides 4-H and FFA youth opportunities to further their agricultural, leadership, and higher education goals.

The birth of the Bandera County Jr. Livestock show took place in 1936 when the Medina Future Farmers of America (FFA) hosted the first Stock Show in the county.
The purpose of the show was to select the best animals for participation in the San Antonio Southwest Texas Boys Fat Stock Show.

In 1937, County Agent Howard Schlemmer started a county 4-H organization and used that foundation to jump start the junior show. By 1938, the county show included 23 pens of sheep, several goats, some hogs and chickens. Twenty-three boys took part in the show, exhibiting more than 140 animals. The show alternated its location each year from Bandera to Medina and back again, before moving to its permanent home at Mansfield Park in Bandera.
