Today Coastal Bend Classic Youth Livestock Clinics and Shows will kickoff their 2 day event in Sinton, Texas. The CBC is an educational opportunity for youth and families in 4-H & FFA participating in livestock shows.
What is the Coastal Bend Classic?
The Coastal Bend Classic (CBC) is an educational opportunity open to all interested youth and families in 4-H & FFA participating in livestock projects.
The mission of the CBC is to teach the basic principles of livestock management as it relates to facility maintenance, nutrition, animal health, handling, showmanship, transportation, show preparation, and quality assurance.
Quality Counts, a livestock quality assurance program, is highlighted to ensure the safe and legal use of medications and feeds to facilitate the ethical care, development, and exhibition of livestock.
Parents and leaders are encouraged to remember that livestock projects (regardless of specie) are to be used as a tool in the process of teaching positive youth development.
Who is eligible to participate?
All 4-H and FFA members are invited and encouraged to participate in the CBC.
Youth participants MUST participate in one of the specie clinics to be eligible for the show. However, it is not a requirement to participate.
Parents and adult leaders are also encouraged to participate in the clinics and workshops.
The registration fee for the CBC is $30 per youth participant and may be paid the day of the event.
NOTE: The one time registration fee allows for an unlimited number of entries in the afternoon shows. Parents can attend for free. Door prizes, and awards are available thanks to donations from sponsors.
The Coastal Bend Classic will provide an excellent opportunity to learn from some of the most experienced breeders and consultants in the country in assisting to develop student skills in livestock project management.
