Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo: Youth Meat Pen

Amazing amount of behind the scenes work for youth meat pens. I was happy to be a part of it. Here’s a glimpse from the tail end of the show, after several pens were eliminated. A little less than 50 waiting for final placement. Just over 150 pens were checked in. A pen consists of 3 rabbits no older than 10 weeks old, ranging from 3.5 to 5.5 lbs, who are as identical as possible in weight, frame, and muscle mass. That’s over 450 rabbits that have been sifted, evaluated, and placed by 3 different judges this morning!

The grand champion will go home with $7,500.00 !!!
