Come on down to the Valley


August 30, 2012

The entire crew at La Muneca is excited about the 25th Annual Field Day and LMC Futurity coming up in October.  Registration will begin Saturday morning and there will be hay and cattle judging contest with multiple classes to be judged with multiple age divisions including adults.  Prior to the contest we will have experienced speakers providing their input on how to judge hay and cattle.  This event is open to the public and there is no entry fee for the contests or the field day.   

Throughout the day we will have speakers on various topics, including showmanship, nutrition and interesting leadership topics from some of the industry’s effective leaders.  The Edinburg FFA will be on hand serving food throughout the event and as is the tradition at every field day, every kid registered will win a door prize.  A BIG HEARTY THANKS to all the donors who have generously donated door prizes over the last 25 years of this fun filled and educational event.  Many leaders will be on hand to answer any of your questions regarding your cattle project throughout the day.  Buckles and premiums will be awarded to the winners of the hay and cattle judging contests at the conclusion of the field day.  We would also like to extend a BIG HEARTY THANKS to all the donors of these buckles and premiums over the last 25 years.  We will also be awarding our annual LMC Awards, which include the LMC Educator of the Year, LMC Booster of the Year and LMC Volunteer of the Year.  The winners of the LMC Raffle will also be awarded, if you are interested in buying tickets for the raffle and have not been contacted by a LMC junior, please give us a call.   

At the conclusion of the field day we will have the LMC Futurity, where the members of the winning LMC Jr. Show Team will compete in showmanship and show their cattle.  These hard working juniors will be competing for premiums in which they raised through selling raffle tickets for the LMC Raffle.  The juniors keep half of what each ticket sells for and the other half makes up the purse for the LMC Futurity, which has awarded over $10,000 a year on average to the LMC Jr. Show Team.  As the tradition with all LMC events, half of the money will be awarded in the showmanship contest and the other half will be awarded in the cattle show.  As we celebrate 25 successful years of the LMC South Texas Jr. Roundup & LMC Futurity, we will also host and celebrate the first ever Purebred Brahman Steer Show.  Juniors will be competing for buckles, banners and premiums.  We are excited to have Chris & Kasey Shivers of Houston, Texas come down to work with our kids and sort through the exhibitors and cattle.  Both Chris and Kasey have spent their entire lives in the industry and enjoy working with the kids.  Chris is the Executive Vice President of the American Brahman Breeders Association and Kasey is an Attorney at Schwartz, Junell, Greenberg & Oathout LLP, both located in Houston, Texas.

At the conclusion of the LMC Futurity we will host our annual LMC Customer Appreciation Dinner, which you are invited to attend.  Here we will share stories about all the good times and deeds done over the last 25 years at the LMC South Texas Jr. Roundup and LMC Futurity and enjoy plenty of fellowship.  We encourage and welcome 4-H Clubs and FFA Chapters, as well as judging teams to attend this event and if you have any questions feel free to contact us at or 956.383.7566.  WE HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US!
