Senior Alisa Guler, a Blanco FFA member, exhibited the Reserve Champion American Breed steer at the 2008 San Angelo Stock Show this past week. Alisa placed 2nd in the middle weight American Breed class. After the judge selected the 1st place middle weight as the Champion, Alisa was then selected as the Reserve Champion. In addition to Alisa’s success, two other Blanco FFA members also did well as Shelby Moore placed 2nd with his light weight European steer and Katie Baker would bring home an 8th place ribbon with her middle weight British steer. Kaleigh Anderson also exhibited a steer at this year’s show. As a result of their top 2 placing, both Alisa and Shelby will be taking part in a special auction at the show on Saturday, March 1st.
All four of these students, as well as many others, will now prepare for the Star of Texas Fair in Austin, as well as the Houston Livestock Show. Advisors for the Blanco FFA and Blanco Junior FFA are Felice and Jason Marek.
