David Bragg, Chairman of the Erath County Livestock Association, Inc., is pleased to announce the recent merger of the Erath County Livestock Association, Inc. and the Junior Livestock Show of Erath County, Inc. Bragg said both non-profit organizations have existed for years for the main purpose of providing the facilities and conducting the Junior Livestock Show for the youth of Erath County.
The Livestock Association was formed in 1962 by a group of local ranchers and business leaders of Erath County. The purpose of the organization was to promote the improvement of livestock and to sponsor livestock shows and exhibitions. The Junior Livestock Show of Erath County was formed years later by a group interested in conducting the annual show. Leaders from both organizations recognized each existed for a similar purpose. According to Bragg, the merger will ensure the future of the Junior Livestock Show.
Make plans to attend the 2018 Junior Livestock Show of Erath County, Wednesday, January 3 through Saturday, January 6 and lend your support to the youth of Erath County.
