AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Future Ag leaders are gathering this week for the Randall County Jr. Livestock Show which runs through January 12.

Over 450 animals and 200 exhibitors are expected to participate at this year’s show. Officials noted that kids ages 8 to 18 from all around the county will show their animals to judges, later selling the livestock during a public auction.
