The Sandhills Stock Show and Rodeo Kicks Off Friday At The Ector County Coliseum
It's rodeo time in West Texas. The annual Sandhills Stock Show and Rodeo kicks off this Friday, January 5th, at the Ector County Coliseum and will run through January 15th.
Professional Rodeo comes to an end every December with the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas but it starts every new year in Odessa. Since 1933 the Sandhills Stock Show and Rodeo has been the first professional rodeo of the new year to kick off another year of rodeo. It also begins stock show season for many young people.
The SandHills Steer Show is the only Junior Livestock Show in the state of Texas which is exclusively Hereford cattle. Likewise, our Lamb Show is unique in that we show only Fine Wool Lambs. Because of this, the quality of the steers and lambs shown in Odessa rivals any show in the state. In addition to the prizes and premiums awarded in our shows and our sale, participating students also compete for scholarships.
The Sandhills Stock Show awards thousands of dollars annually to many students.
