No Comments

HOUSTON – After months of preparing their broilers and turkeys for the world’s largest livestock show and rodeo, Texas 4-H and FFA members efforts’ were rewarded, Thursday, March 16, during the Junior Market Poultry Champion Selection at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Buckholts FFA member Cooper Meinards, 16, earned Grand Champion Pen of Broilers. In his fifth year competing at the Show, Meinards said he has had help making it this far.

“A lot of people have been an inspiration, but Lana McDurnam got me started showing,” Cooper said. “She’s known me a long time and is a good family friend.”

The Reserve Grand Champion Pen of Broilers was shown by Kamryn Till, 11, of Wharton County 4-H. The Nada, Texas, native said her biggest challenge this season was getting up in the mornings, but it taught her responsibility.

“This season has been stressful,” Kamryn said. “It’s a lot of work, [but] it feels pretty awesome.”

Thomas Oman, 12, a Taylor 4-H member, exhibited the Grand Champion Turkey. Showing turkeys is an Oman family tradition that Thomas is proud to continue.

“It’s fun and has been in my family since my dad was young,” Thomas said.

First-time Show competitor, Hewston Lochte, 9, won Reserve Champion Turkey. The Wrede 4-H member thanked his dad for helping him achieve this accomplishment.

“My biggest inspiration is my dad,” Hewston said. “He helped me take care of the turkeys.”

Exhibitors will sell their broilers and turkeys in the Junior Market Poultry Auction, Friday, March 17, at noon.

Here’s whats happening this week on the Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith!

No Comments

1
We start off by talking spring bear hunting with Mossberg Firearms’ Linda Powell. Our longtime friend has harvested more bears than just about anyone we know and she talks about why hunting both brown and black bears is so addictive. Linda has taken black bears all over North America and brown bears in both Alaska and Russia. We also discuss the Mossberg 835 Turkey Shotgun we’ll be giving away on the show this month.

2
Next, we discuss the use of thermal imaging drones for hog eradication and wildlife management surveys. I had the opportunity to go out with Jason Douglas of Thermal Wildlife Drones last week and take in first hand how a drone can help landowners find and eliminate feral hogs. But this technology comes with a gray area for me. We discuss all the details with Jason. (Jason waiting for dark to fly the drone- we would kill 14 hogs with the drones assistance that night)

3

We round out the show by visiting with Dallas Safari Club Executive Director Ben Carter for the last time. Ben is stepping down after a decade at the helm of DSC. We take a look back at what he’s most proud of during that tenure. I also ask him what to expect and how to prepare for my first trip to Africa this summer. We’ll see you Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
