The San Angelo Stock Show was established in 1932 as an opportunity to promote agriculture to West Texas boys, and eventually girls. The show started with cattle and breeding sheep classes, and market shows were referred to as "fat" shows.
The San Angelo Livestock Show has grown to be one of the largest junior shows in the nation. The event features over 40 different contests, competitions, and events for youth and open exhibitors. Featuring livestock species including cattle, swine, sheep, goats, llamas, and rabbits, there is something for just about everyone!
Though the foundation of the show is the same, it has evolved into a major production. Students from across the state of Texas compete for massive prize monies and a spot in the coveted Premium Sale.
