Groveton Times

The National Western Stock Show is considered the Super Bowl of Livestock Shows as one of the world's largest cattle shows. The show hosts nearly 20 breeds of cattle during its 16- day run. Cole Sullivan, Trinity County 4-H member and officer and Groveton FFA member, exhibited his Limousin heifer "May" at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver, Colorado on Jan. 9. Cole is a freshman at Groveton High School and won first in his class and Bennie Schiro I haven't watched any NFL since week 3 and won't be watching this one. Stand and show respect for our Troops and our Law Enforcement. However, I do have a prediction. No way anyone beats the Eagles and Lane Johnson. Dax Parker My prediction is that the Eagles will win the Super Bowl! Go Lane Johnson! John Wayne Reynolds 31 Eagles 28 Patriots. Big games are won in the trenches. The Eagles have a good defensive line and thanks to Groveton Native Lane Johnson their offensive line is unstoppable. Kristin Raiford I have to be loyal to the Trinity County player and go with the Eagles Robyn Watts My prediction for winning the super bowl is The Philadelphia Eagles. You can't live in Groveton and not root for them! Sam Shanafelt #standup I haven't watched a game all year.

Judge Page recently signed a proclamation designating Feb. 7 as Food Connection Day. then was named the Division Champion. He continued on to compete in the Grand Champion drive. Cole is the son of Dane and Kelly Sullivan of Groveton, Grandson of John and Joy Thompson of Groveton and Jo Sullivan Kennedy of Lufkin, Texas. Youth involvement is one of the highlights of the livestock shows. Young exhibitors from across the nation participate in our competitive arenas for prize monies, national recognition for their achievements and a chance at college scholarships. Visitors are able to view traditional competition among exhibitors of breeding animals ultimately used for seedstock in agricultural production (beef cattle, sheep and goats). The Livestock department processes in excess of 20,000 entries for each years National Western Stock Show. Known as the "Superbowl" of Livestock Events, exhibitors bring their livestock from all over the United States and Canada. Livestock producers and educators come from all over the world to view and buy the best livestock on earth. Livestock exhibited at the National Western include more than 20 breeds of beef cattle along with bison, yaks and longhorns, sheep, hogs, goats, poultry, llamas and alpacas. Stock dog herding competitions are also held. Along with the many events in the main Hall and Stadium Arena, known as the "Hill", the historic Denver Stock Yards is home to multiple cattle shows that include pens and carloads of cattle in competition. The "Yards" is the only event of its kind in North America and is a Mecca of activity for the livestock industry. Held in the brisk open air of Denver in January the "Yards" is also home to many cattle sales where the best are auctioned off to the highest bidders. Producers display their livestock in the pens just as they have for decades at the National Western Stock Show.
