Los Fresnos RGVLS Winners

Members of the Los Frenos 4H and FFA clubs were able to compete in front of limited crowds at the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show in Mercedes last month.
The restrictions due to the pandemic limited the fanfare of the event. No rodeo, no carnival, no concerts during the 10 days of competition. Some of these fun aspects may be done later in the year. But the stock show judging went as scheduled.
Students from across the area put in a lot of work in to raising prized animals, plants, building and art projects. The pandemic also limited contact with trainers and sponsors for most competetors.
The efforts of these competitors is an example to the ethic of doing our best no matter the situation.
Congratulations to all the winners!
