Wylie, Wylie East and Community FFA members claimed a bushel basket full of awards last week in the 2016 Collin County Junior Livestock Show.

The show was held at Myers Park Event Center in McKinney and concluded Saturday afternoon with a ribbon sale of top market animals and projects. In a ribbon sale, bidders reward the junior exhibitors for their efforts but the showmen keep their animals to take to other shows.

Pulling in the top prize of area participants was Maddie Stanfield of Wylie FFA who exhibited the grand champion pen of broilers, while Monica Butts of Wylie FFA showed the reserve grand champion pen of broilers.

Several showmen claimed top awards in breed divisions in market animal shows. Community FFA member Dylan Avant exhibited the champion American steer, Zach Vandervort of Wylie FFA showed the champion Yorkshire pig and Meredith Pamplona of Wylie East FFA showed the reserve champion Duroc.

A pair of WHS students placed well in the rabbit show. Jared Young showed the Champion Fuzzy Lop, Champion Mini Lop, Best in Class Netherland Dwarf and Best in Class Lion Head, while Peyton White also showed a Best in Class Lion Head.

In addition, Community student Carter McClendon was the reserve champion senior showman for market sheep, Community student Tanner Phillips was reserve champion breeding sheep showman, and Peyton White of Wylie High was senior reserve market goats showman.
