2022 San Antonio Livestock Show Entry Info & Updates



Hey all!

Please see the information below on the San Antonio Stock Show coming up in February 2022, including the Junior Livestock Show and the Junior Judging Contests. 

Please note that we are only focusing this information on the portions of the show that require the youth members to be 4-H (or FFA) members in order to enter.  These are the only opportunities for which we can request an excused absence from your school.  

If you are showing livestock, please note that you MUST have an updated Quality Counts Number for your age group (important if you are new to showing, if you have moved from 5th to 6th grade, or if you have moved from 8th to 9th grade).

Please read through these opportunities and let us know if you need help with anything!


  • All 2022 4-H Major Show Entries are DUE to the Bastrop County Extension Office by 12:00 Noon on Thursday, November 4, 2021, unless otherwise noted for specific contest entries.
  • REMINDER: All Extension Agents have until 12/01/21 to review, enter online, sign, seal, and postmark all entries and supporting documents for the major shows - they must be turned in by November 4th to the CEO in order for us to process through everything and to make sure your information is up to date and correct.
  • CEO LATE FEE: any entries turned in after the November 4th deadline will be subject to a $25 per entry late fee
  • Please note, for any entries turned in after the CEO mails in entries the exhibitor will be responsible for any late fees and additional postage required to enter the show.
