Cypress Ranch High School sophomore Connor Wallace shows his reserve champion market swine at the CFISD Livestock Show and Sale on Feb. 7. The swine was sold to Conda Maze JRP LLC for $20,000.

Feb. 10, 2015—CFISD students are expected to raise a record amount from the 21st Annual CFISD Livestock Show and Sale, held Feb. 5-7 at the CFISD Exhibit Center.

The community once again displayed an overwhelming amount of generosity in the live auction, freezer sale and via additional monetary contributions to students.

The Premium Sale (live auction) unofficially raised $520,750, up $10,000 from 2014 and making it the largest premium sale in CFISD history. Final amounts from the Freezer Sale (animals not placing high enough for the live auction), Agriculture Mechanics silent auction and additional gifts to students are not yet available, but CFISD career and technical education coordinator Denise Kubecka said the total is expected to surpass the $835,520 raised from the 2014 sale.

Once again our community came out to support our FFA students both in the stands and at the sale,” Kubecka said. “You could see the emotion on many of the students’ faces as they heard the cheers from the crowd during judging; acknowledgement of their hard work and dedication. While it will take a few days to get firm numbers, the live auction was up by about $10,000 from last year; with seven champions sold at prices that beat or matched records from previous sales.”

The following Livestock Royalty representatives were chosen:

  • Show King – Christopher Flores, Langham Creek FFA, earned a $1,000 scholarship;
  • Show Queen – Megan Heard, Cypress Ranch FFA, earned a $1,000 scholarship;
  • Mr. Show Teen – Reese Thibodeaux, Jersey Village FFA, earned $300 credit toward a project next year;
  • Miss Show Teen – Meghan Sirmans, Cypress Ranch FFA, earned $300 credit toward a project next year; and
  • Top Hand (Sales) – Maddy Butler, Cy-Fair FFA, earned $300 credit toward a project next year.
