Livestock Exhibitors

Promoting the continued improvement in the breeding, raising and marketing of livestock and encouraging the pursuit of excellence throughout the livestock and agriculture industries is an important part of the Stock Show’s legendary mission. The connection with the livestock industry has been strong since a group of cattlemen gathered on the banks of Marine Creek for the first Fort Worth Stock Show more than 120 years ago. The long-standing traditions of the Stock Show are maintained as we continually strive to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of the industry.

We are privileged to continue to be a favorite among the livestock exhibitors. The Show hosts more than 29,000 livestock with exhibitors representing 41 states and three foreign countries. Junior Show entries will total more than 11,000.

A wide variety of livestock can also be purchased through public auctions during the Show including registered and commercial cattle, horses, llamas and rabbits.

The Fort Worth Stock Show Syndicate, a group of area business leaders that are dedicated to enhancing agricultural education activities of Texas youth works annually to raise millions of dollars for auction proceeds. The remainder of the sale proceeds will come from members of the Fort Worth Businessmen, Ladies on the Lamb, U Ol’ Goat, Tallest Hog at the Trough and Women Steering business. Since 1980, these organizations have awarded more than $20,000,000 in sale funds and scholarships to deserving livestock participants.
