AMARILLO — Eight youth representing Wellington FFA traveled to the 2020 Amarillo Tri-State Fair for the lamb and goat show Sept. 19.
Although the “fair” ended up being cancelled due to COVID-19, the fair executive board decided in July to move forward with the youth market livestock shows, equine shows, bantam show and ag mechanics contest.
“We, as a board, would like nothing more than to feel that the thing to do is hold the fair without modifications,” said Tri-State Fair & Rodeo General Manager Virgil Bartlett in July. “However, our current circumstances with public health do not allow for that to happen.”
Students competing in the goat show include Jacy Lampe, who placed fifth in class 1; Kenna Darrow placed eighth in class 3; Brecklyn Powell placed 14th in class 3; Kenna Darrow placed 6th in class 5; Eryn Torrez placed 13th in class 5; Brecklyn Powell placed 10th in class 10; and Jace Darrow placed 10th in class 10.
In the lamb show, Jacy Lampe placed eighth with her lightweight medium wool and Rileigh Henard placed 10th with her lightweight medium wool lamb. Anna Henard exhibited her heavyweight medium wool lamb.
