“The show must go on” P.T. Barnum, and that is exactly what has happened in Henderson County for 60 years.

Welcome to the 60th annual Henderson County Livestock Show. This is a great accomplishment and a testament to the support and commitment of countless volunteers and supporters in the Henderson County Area. I know that many people throughout the county have fond memories of participating at the Henderson County Livestock show and I hope that we can incorporate those into this year’s show. I can still remember that day in 1984 when I was awarded the Champion Breeding Beef Showman, that memory will stay with me my entire life and helps me to push myself in the knowledge that through hard work, great things will happen.


Great things are happening at the Henderson County Livestock Show. We once again eclipsed the $600,000 mark in sales from our Livestock premium auction, commercial heifers and project show. $50,000 in Scholarships was awarded to well deserving students across the county involved in agriculture. We had another successful senior reception to say farewell to our 2019 seniors where we enjoyed a steak meal served up by Bar C Enterprises. We want to wish these students good luck in their future plans and also remind them that for the Show to continue to prosper for another 60 years their involvement is a must. These accomplishments could not be achieved without the untold hours put in by the exhibitors, parents, FFA advisors, 4-H leaders, volunteers and of course buyers who support the future leaders of Henderson County.

We would like to invite everyone to come out to the 60th Annual Livestock Show March 23rd-28th, 2020 and enjoy the festivities and memories of years past. Be sure to take in the many livestock shows and project shows and visit with old friends and new ones. Entrance onto the grounds is free and we would like to thank our gate sponsors for this convenience.  They were Aqua Texas, Benson’s Eats and Treats, Henderson County Title and Colonial Title, and National Land Realty-Dustin Weems. 

The students will have put many hours of hard work into their projects, for some nearly a year. They will be striving for success, some will realize that success and some will not, but you will notice that all of them work together to make sure the Henderson County Show is a success. I am honored to be the President of The Livestock Show Association for the 2019-2020 show and would like to once again invite everyone to the HCLS 2020 Show. I would also like to encourage anyone that wants to get involved to come to join the HCLS Association, we meet on the second Monday of every odd month at 7pm in the TVCC agriculture building.

“No one can take your memories from you, each day is a new beginning, make good memories every day. “Catherine Pulsifer.  That is what the Henderson County livestock show is about, making good memories and we want the citizens of Henderson County to come and be a part of these memories.
