Buck, Sweat And Steers Showcased At The 122nd Fort Worth Stock Show And Rodeo

Fort Worth, Texas – The “Buck, Sweat & Steers” is coming back to Fort Worth with the 122nd annual Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo set to launch January 12 through February 3 at Will Rogers Memorial Center in the heart of Cowtown’s Cultural District.
Celebrating the “buck” is the 100th anniversary of indoor rodeo, recognizing when the sport was brought under the roof at what was then the North Side Coliseum. Names like Shoulders, Mahan, Frost, Ferguson, Josey and Murray, along with countless others of the sport’s legends have entertained millions of visitors during what has become known as “Stock Show Season,” by Fort Worth natives. Opportunities abound to experience the action during 36 rodeo performances that include the Best of the West Ranch Rodeo, Best of Mexico Celebraciõn, Cowboys of Color Rodeo, Bulls Night Out Extreme Bull Riding, Fort Worth Super Shootout® Rodeo and the legendary World’s Original Indoor Rodeo.
The “sweat” happens before, during and after the rodeo as, months in advance, Stock Show exhibitors prepare animals for showing and competition, rodeo contestants practice, and Stock Show volunteers put miles and miles on their collective Justin boots helping exhibitors and visitors alike find their way throughout the grounds.
It’s the “steers” that will garner the most attention as the longed-for slap to the hip signifies the winner of the Grand Champion Steer near the close of the show after more than 10,000 youth have dedicated the previous weeks to competing for awards, cash premiums, scholarships and auction proceeds earmarked to finance their potential career in animal, food, business or mechanical agriculture.
Regardless of style or taste, there’s something for everyone at the Stock Show. Children and adults alike can enjoy events, activities and exhibits related to livestock, agriculture and the food industry. Hot regional music acts entertain crowds and the carnival midway is a blast not only for the kids but the kids at heart.

National feeder cattle receipts: 372,300

Feeder steers and heifers were mostly $5-10 lower, instances reported $15 lower while steer and heifer calves under 550 lbs sold steady to $5 lower. Demand was moderate for most longtime weaned and preconditioned cattle. Some locations noted a few loads and packages still coming off the cow but selling with little or no discount. Livestock markets are getting back to normal schedules after the Holidays and many willing sellers were on hand to watch their livestock go through the sale ring this week. Auction receipts on this report totaled 372,300 this week; the largest auction volume reported since 2010. Total receipts this week totaled 530,300; almost 25,000 head short of week ending July 17, 2015. However, during that week in July 2015, 65 percent of the volume was attributed to Video and Internet sales. Jan. 12, Over 70 percent was attributed to the auction receipts. Lackluster futures market late Jan. 5 followed through into January 8 and contributed to the sharp losses occurring in the sale rings throughout the country. Compared to Jan. 5, CME cattle complex saw the Live Cattle Contracts $0.35-1.88 lower while the Feeder Cattle contracts were $0.68 higher to $2.27 lower. Some analysts were wondering if convergence between the January Feeder contract and CME Feeder Cattle Index would happen this month. The January Feeder Contract settled at $144.35 Jan. 12 and the CME Feeder Cattle Index reported Jan. 11 at $146.80. Lower feedlot trade on Jan. 8 was abnormal, however some producers wanted to get out in front of the winter storms forecasted mid-week in the Plains states. Some feedlots had limited interest to procure large numbers of cattle with another round of bone-chilling temps headed their way. In the Southern Plains and Colorado the last reported market was on Jan. 8 with live cash trades at $120. In Nebraska and the Western Cornbelt the last reported market was on Jan. 9 with live cash trades at $120 and dressed trades were at $192.
