The Supreme Heifer Drive is one of the highlights of the San Antonio Stock Show. These breed champions are selected over a two day period. Cattle are shown within their breed by birthdate, from calves up to two years of age. Heifers are ranked on how well they represent their respective breed in characteristics such as structural correctness, body capacity, and eye appeal. Once the cattle are no longer eligible for competition, many serve as the basis for an exhibitor’s herd.

The Breeding Sheep Show consists of six different purebred breeds including Dorper, Hampshire, Rambouillet, Southdown, Suffolk, and White Dorper*. Each of these breeds offer unique traits to the sheep industry. Exhibitors may bring ewe lambs, yearling ewes, and aged ewes for competition. The Breeding Goat Show is made up of Angora and Boer goats, both does and bucks. Angoras are known for their mohair and are judged on the quality of their mohair along with other physical characteristics. Boer goats have become popular for their added meat production compared to other breeds of goats. The age of goats that are exhibited range from kids to mature does and bucks. The Junior Wether Dam Show is intended to be an exhibition for ewes suited for club lamb production. Similarly, the Junior Wether Doe Show is intended for does suited for market wether production. Breeding females are not required to be registered within a breed association to participate in the Junior Wether Dam or Junior Wether Doe show.  After their show career is over, these animals become the foundation for the Texas 4-H and FFA member’s own herd.

One of the most popular shows for both Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors and patrons is the Junior Market Steer Show. Over a three day period fifteen different breeds of cattle are paraded in front of one judge to determine the winners who have the opportunity to sell in the Junior Livestock Auction. Market steers are judged on traits such as potential carcass value, and balance and eye appeal. During the last Friday night rodeo performance in the AT&T Center the Livestock Show is given the opportunity to showcase one of the most prestigious line-ups for Texas steer show participants. Folks from across the state make it a point not to miss this performance on the rodeo schedule, so they can witness this event each year. Those who attend this performance will have the opportunity to admire each Champion Steer and Reserve Champion Steer from all breeds shown by the young contestants during the Steer Show. The Champion Steer Drive is where each contestant will have one last chance to present their steer to the judge to decide who will represent the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo as Grand Champion Steer and Reserve Grand Champion Steer.
