2019 Sandhills Royalty

Last year’s event brought 614 entries from across Texas. There were Hereford heifers and steers, fine wool lambs, and market goats. The SandHills Steer Show is the only Junior Livestock Show in the state of Texas which is exclusively Hereford cattle.Β  Likewise, the Lamb Show is unique in that they show only Fine-Wool Lambs.Β  Because of this, the quality of the steers and lambs shown in Odessa rivals any show in the state.Β  In addition to the prizes and premiums awarded in their shows and sale, participating students also compete for scholarships.
