The Livestock Committee works year round to support the Agricultural Science programs in our community’s high schools. Students at Pasadena, Deer Park, La Porte, and Clear Creek ISD high schools who are in Ag science classes and are active members of the FFA are eligible to participate in the PLS&R Livestock Show. Residents of Today's Harbor who are enrolled in high school are also eligible.
Exhibitors may participate in one, or many, of the competitions available to them. Students can choose to raise an animal (rabbits, turkeys, broilers, lambs, goats, hogs or steers) and show them here for a chance to participate in the PLS&R Livestock Auction. Each year the PLS&R Livestock Auction awards hundreds of thousands of dollars of prize and scholarship money to these hard-working students. Students may also participate in our heifer show, agricultural mechanics show or floral design show. These FFA students are eligible to receive one of the many scholarships awarded by the PLS&R Association each year.
Students may also compete in the Calf Scramble, which takes place during the Rodeo performance most nights. Each evening, around 25 students attempt to catch 6 calves, place a halter on one and lead it to the center of the arena to win a gift certificate for a pair of boots and bragging rights!
The Livestock Show Schedule is posted here and we invite everyone to come out and support the youth of our community. The Livestock Barn is also open before the rodeo performances, so bring the family and come out and visit. See the animals and meet some of the exhibitors! Please remember that the Livestock Barn is a no smoking, no alcohol environment.
