Deshaun Watson Named Grand Marshal Of 2019 Houston Livestock Show And Rodeo™ Downtown Rodeo Parade

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is excited to announce that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will help kick off the 2019 season as grand marshal of the Downtown Rodeo Parade Saturday, Feb. 23. The annual event celebrates Western heritage and marks the beginning of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo season, a tradition since 1938.
“We are truly honored to have Deshaun Watson serve as grand marshal of the 2019 Downtown Rodeo Parade,” said Joel Cowley, Rodeo president and CEO. “Since arriving in Houston, Deshaun has had a tremendous impact, both on the field and within our community, and we are thrilled to have him participate in this time-honored tradition.”
A Gainesville, Georgia, native, Watson attended Clemson University and boasted a 32-3 record as the starting quarterback. He led the Tigers to back-to-back College Football Playoff appearances, winning the school’s second national title in 2016. Watson then declared for the NFL draft and was selected by the Houston Texans in the first round as the 12th overall pick. He set several NFL records during his rookie season in 2017 and made his first playoff appearance with the Texans during the 2018 season.
Watson has also made headlines with his generosity in the Houston community. In 2017, he donated his first game check to three NRG Stadium workers who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. He also partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help furnish 176 homes in the Houston area that had been damaged by the storm.
The Downtown Rodeo Parade will be held Saturday, Feb. 23 at 10 a.m. The parade route begins at Bagby and Walker streets, travels from Travis to Bell, and from Bell to Louisiana, before turning on Lamar and ending at Lamar and Bagby streets.
Prior to the start of the parade will be the 32nd annual Rodeo Run, presented by ConocoPhillips.

National Feeder Cattle Summary

St. Joseph, MO — February 15
National feeder cattle receipts: 223,800

Steers and heifers sold $2 lower to $2 higher in the North and South Central areas while the Southeast steers and heifers were $2-5 higher. Grazing calves in all areas were in demand as procurement was essential to ranchers. Ranchers are gearing up for grazing season as many areas have ample moisture for this time of year. When looking at the drought monitor, most of the severely drought stricken areas from last year have all but vanished in the breadbasket of the country. Areas in TX, NM, and CO are still showing drought effects. Order buyers were out in full force as fewer receipts were at sales across the country and feedyards were willing to take on replacement cattle in spite of muddy pens in the major feeding regions. Winter Storm Nadia is tracking eastward late after dumping feet of snow to the West. It seems like Mother Nature wants winter to hang on as long as possible and cow-calf producers are sure wanting Punxsutawney Phil is correct and spring will be here very shortly. Fed cattle prices were higher Feb. 8 after six weeks of ho-hum steady markets. Feedyards just couldn’t get over the proverbial hump to get to $125 until Feb. 8. Trading has not yet been established as of this writing. Packers are very aware that cattle weights are not as large as they were last year this time, thus bringing less volume of meat to the market on similar head counts. Valentine’s Day holiday is one of the top 3 holidays for public eating out in restaurants with many of those customers choosing beef or a surf and turf for their entrees. Moving out of February and into March, a beef rally is expected to happen and with that should come increased fed cattle prices if the trickle down effect comes to fruition. When we get to warmer weather in the second quarter, middle meats will be front and center on retail ads with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day followed closely by Independence Day buying. For the week, the Choice cutout closed $1.50 higher at $216.85, while Select was $0.18 lower at $210.99. Cattle Slaughter under federal inspection estimated at 596K for the week, 24K less than Feb. 8 and 6K less than a year ago.
