The Junior Livestock Show has been a staple of the Grand National Rodeo event for decades. Through many changes in dates and structure within the event, in 2011 at its low point in the number of livestock entries were 1456. Since then with the hard work of staff and interested youth exhibitors throughout the state and beyond, the show has continued to grow, bringing 2015 up to 2033 entries.

The Livestock Show at the Grand National event is considered a “jackpot” show where the exhibitors win prize money for their animals instead of participating in an auction. The amount of prize money given to the youth exhibitors for 2015 was $56,000 and the Open Exhibitors was an additional $17,000.

The breakdown by area for exhibitors is as follows:

Central Valley: 36%
Northern CA: 22%
North Coastal: 11%

Central Coastal: 10%

Bay Area: 7%
Far South or North: 6%
Out of State 10%
Although the Grand National Rodeo continues to strive toward being financially self-sufficient, the Junior Show relies heavily upon sponsorship's and donations, in addition to the income earned from entry fees. If you would be interested in becoming a sponsor or providing a donation to the awards for the Junior Livestock Show please contact our Sponsor Coordinator at kferreira@cowpalace.com
