Future Farmer gains experience at livestock show
Orangefield High School Future Farmers of America member, Kayla Shackelford, participated in the Fort Worth Stock Show Jan. 22-26. She placed 4th out of seventeen in her class showing a Beefmaster heifer. Her 15 month old heifer, Snowflake, weighs around 1,000 pounds.
“I was nervous and excited,” said Shackelford. “It was quite an experience. I didn’t go there to win, I just went for the experience.”
Shackelford also plans on showing her heifer in San Antonio in a couple of weeks.
