Toby Fleming and Blake Griffin both exhibited a pen of broilers at the Houston Livestock Show.  This is the first time Center FFA has been represented at the Houston Broiler show is several years.  The boys received their birds on January 29th.  They raised their birds over a 6 week period in the rain and cold.  Out of the near 400 pens of chickens that were shown this year at the Houston show, the boys were called back during the 4th round.  Although they did not make the sale this year, it was a fantastic learning experience for next year!

Kam and Alec Lucas received a blue ribbon this past weekend for their â€‹cattle ​feeder at the Houston â€‹Livestock Show and Rodeo
