Held the last weekend of the Stock Show & Rodeo, the Junior Agricultural Mechanics Show focuses on Texas 4-H and FFA members’ expertise to design and construct agricultural mechanics projects and tractor restoration projects. A variety of projects are constructed by these talented exhibitors including livestock equipment, trailers, and agricultural machinery. As well, exhibitors may restore tractors that range from early 1900 era models to more modern tractors built in 1990. Exhibitors may compete as individuals or in teams of up to six members. Judging focuses not only on the craftsmanship of the exhibitors, but also their documentation and interaction with the judges’ panel.

More rules and information can be found in the Livestock Premium List.
