New Caney FFA Student wins Grand Champion Steer
New Caney’s annual East Montgomery County Fair held the Livestock competition earlier this month, and Tristan Gage from New Caney FFA won Grand Champion Steer!
Students who participated in showing their market animals were responsible for raising the animals from start to finish. After the students selected their animals, they had to follow the animals’ growth closely to record every detail. Those details were very important as it determined how well the animals were scored at the fair.
This was a spectacular experience for all the students involved. Students learned how to raise different animals properly and how to measure their progresses. The students will apply the skill and discipline it took to care for the animals to help them succeed throughout their lives.
The East Montgomery County Fair and Rodeo aimed to “support the youth of the community” by providing opportunities to get involved. Through different organized activities and competitions, there were many scholarships given out to help encourage students to pursue a higher education. This has been an incredible way to motivate the youth of the Royal Brook community at Kingwood.
