Livestock AuctionThe 38th Annual Clear Creek ISD Livestock Show and Auction was held on January 23, 2020, at the West Agriculture Barn. This is the culmination of months of hard work for these students within the Future Farmers of America (FFA) programs across CCISD’s five comprehensive high schools.

FFA students work throughout the summer and fall semester to raise animals, design and construct agriculture mechanics projects, as well as plan and create a multitude of food science, floriculture, horticulture, and visual arts projects to showcase in the annual CCISD Livestock Show.

“These students put in a lot of time and care raising these animals and completing other non-livestock projects,” said JT Buford, career and technical education program manager in CCISD. “They are required to feed their animals a minimum of two times a day, morning and evening, seven days a week no matter the weather or temperature. Hours are spent feeding, grooming, and training with animal projects trying to perfect showmanship for the animal and exhibitor while trying to unlock the animal’s greatest genetic potential.”

A total of more than $153,000 was raised for FFA students across the District this year. The CCISD Livestock Auction benefits students by providing an opportunity for them to explore and develop a passion for production agriculture, learn valuable lessons in money and time management, and offers the opportunity to potentially fund additional animal projects or future education expenses.

“The CCISD Livestock Show and Auction would like to thank the community for deeply believing in the CCISD FFA members and programs by continuing to support us each year,” said Buford. “Lastly, I’d like to thank all of the CCISD Ag teachers for their selfless dedication to their students and FFA programs. Without them, the Livestock Show wouldn’t be nearly as successful.”
