2019 Houston Livestock Show Schedule Updates

In an effort to continually improve upon the quality of our show presentation and experience for exhibitors, we are proposing a few schedule changes for the 2019 Show. The main reason for the changes is to better move ins and move outs for our junior shows. To make this happen, we are switching the days of the lamb/goat and poultry auctions, moving the time frame of the lamb/goat shows and the breeding heifer show up one day and moving the poultry show back one day. The new dates for each show are as follows:

Junior Market Lamb & Goat Show
March 5 - March 8
Move-in: Tuesday, March 5th
Show: Wednesday, March 6th - Thursday, March 7th
Auction: Friday, March 8th

Junior Breeding Beef Heifers
March 6 - March 9
Move-in: Wednesday, March 6th
Show: Thursday, March 7th - Saturday, March 9th
Scramble: Scramble heifer move-in on March 5th following lamb/goat move-in & show on March 6th during junior heifer move-in

Junior Market Poultry Show
March 7 - March 9
Broiler Move-in/Show: Thursday, March 7th
Turkey Move-in/Show: Friday, March 8th
Champion Drive: Friday, March 8th

(note: Poultry judging contest will take place on Wednesday, March 6th)
