This weekend marks the unofficial start to the Junior Livestock Show Season for Muleshoe students. The Bailey County Junior Livestock Show will be held this Friday and Saturday at the Bailey County Coliseum. The show will begin Friday at 8 a.m.

This Friday is a school holiday in Muleshoe, but many of our students will be up early Friday morning working to get their animals ready for the annual Bailey County Junior Livestock Show.

This event always involves hundreds of our students, as well as many of our faculty, staff, parents, and community members.

The livestock show involves students from third grade through 12th grade. Students learn responsibility, hard work, and leadership while taking care of their animals.
