Big Tex Youth Livestock Auction

Agriculture's bright future

The State Fair of Texas Big Tex Youth Livestock Auction and Scholarship Program is a time-honored tradition that celebrates and supports urban and rural youth across Texas. Winning exhibitors are eligible to sell projects through a live auction where sponsors pay premium prices for the youth exhibitors’ hard work. To participate, these youth invest time, passion, and energy in animals with hopes of walking away with the Grand Champion prize in this year’s 75th Annual Auction.

2023 Youth Livestock Auction:

Friday, Oct. 6, 2023 • 1 p.m. inside the Briscoe Carpenter Livestock Center.
