The Litton Agriculture Campus was host to the Stock Show Shootout this past weekend which consisted of four junior preview cattle shows. The shows included Leadin' for A Cure, North Missouri Prospect Show, Milan FFA Jackpot, and the NWMSU Green & Gold Classic. During the weekend, there were more than 655 cattle entries in the two days of events. Even with the rainy weather, a huge crowd attended and many spectators were on hand to watch the shows. Exhibitors showing were from nine different states and traveled many miles to compete for the $18,000 in prize money from the four shows.
The Leadin' for a Cure Show, in particular, was special to many exhibitors and attendees. All proceeds were donated to the Cancer Research Institute and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Chillicothe FFA members and Chillicothe FFA alumni members helped to line up classes, announce results, and take care of other general tasks to keep the shows running smoothly throughout the two days.
The Chillicothe FFA Alumni sponsored the North Missouri Prospect Show which was held on Saturday. There were 185 entries in the show which was held in the outside show ring. "The Chillicothe FFA would like to thank the sponsors of the show," said Leda Shriner, FFA advisor.
