ROBSTOWN, Texas — Our sunrise team is reporting live Friday morning from the Nueces County Junior Livestock Show at the Richard Borchard Fairgrounds in Robstown.

Sierra Pizarro and Juan Acuña are there with all of the color and pageantry of the annual livestock show. The only thing missing are the corn dogs and funnel cakes!

The Nueces County Junior Livestock Show started in 1936 with a goal of encouraging Coastal Bend students to be responsible leaders in the agriculture field.

This isn't just a show-and-tell.

They're competing.

We have hundreds of students as young as 9 and up to 18 years old from about a dozen school districts.

They're competing in multiple divisions like best cow, sheep, goat and even best barbecue.

We'll have reports from the livestock grounds all day.
