Kaufman resident captures win at Fort Worth Stock Show

Morgan Jackson of Kaufman and her Simmental captured a reserve grand champion title at the Fort Worth Stock Show. 

Morgan Jackson from Kaufman captured Reserve Grand Champion Simmental Percentage Female with RRF Rita 215G in the Simmental Show at the 2020 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Feb. 2. The 2020 show is hosting exhibitors from across the North and South America competing for awards and $33,475 in premiums.

Of the nearly 35,000 entries at the nation’s longest-running livestock show, the open division provides stockmen from across the nation with the opportunity to present their livestock on a truly international stage, as entries represented the United States, six Canadian provinces, Mexico, and Venezuela.

“The Stock Show has become a gathering place for the finest livestock in the world,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “We are committed to seeing that grow and providing a one-of-a-kind experience to our exhibitors when it comes to quality competition and pure Texas hospitality.”

Livestock sales during the show are also an important aspect of the event, with 17 auctions culminating in nearly $8.5 million in sales in 2019.
