Port-a-potties are being brought in to replace restrooms. Unloading will begin at 7 a.m. Salado Creek Property staging area arrival deadline has been moved to 4 p.m. to allow more travel on Friday. Remember, if you run into problems on the road and can’t make the arrival time at Salado Creek Property staging area, please call the Livestock Office at 210-225-0575 for a Late Arrival Request.

Sheep Skillathon is Cancelled
It has been a very difficult last few days trying to make everything fall into place for our youth. Unfortunately, we are going to have to cancel our 2021 Junior Breeding Heifer Show due to infrastructure concerns. We understand many of you will be extremely disappointed, and our hearts go out to those seniors that were looking forward to our show. Please know we have tried every avenue possible to make this happen. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
