Spring Branch FFA to Host Annual Show and Sale on Feb. 6-7

Future agricultural leaders will be showing and selling their annual livestock projects Feb. 6-7 at the 37th Annual Spring Branch Livestock Show and Sale, at the Ag Barn, 1905 Brittmoore.

Spring Branch ISD students have been leaders in the Future Farmers of America for more than 50 years. FFA helps students develop potential for leadership, personal growth and career success. The Spring Branch FFA chapter includes students from Memorial, Northbrook, Spring Woods and Stratford high schools, Westchester Academy and the Academy of Choice, as well as junior members from several district middle schools.

Last year’s event raised more than $250,000, selling steers, swine, lambs, goats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys and non-livestock projects. All proceeds go to the students except for 10 percent, which helps fund other educational opportunities and also helps underwrite the Show and Sale. Purchases and contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. You can keep any animal that is purchased (processors are available) or donate the animal back to the chapter.
