The auction totals from the 77th Annual Katy ISD FFA Livestock Show topped $581K. This year’s livestock show consisted of 413 student exhibitors, and their livestock projects raised $581,130.13.


For the third year in a row, the event was held at the newest FFA complex – the Gerald D. Young Agricultural Sciences Center located at 5825 Katy Hockley Cut Off Road. The event provides opportunities for students to develop and showcase their talents in a diverse range of events as they compete for scholarships.
