Earning money


Two freshmen from Crossland Ninth Grade Center, Colten Bison (left) and Sam Spradlin, won vouchers to purchase breeding animals during a calf scramble at the recent San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. 4-H and FFA members compete with one another to catch, halter and coax one of the calves across the winner’s line. The successful scramblers receive a certificate to aid in the purchase of a breeding animal to be raised and shown in the competition the following year. Both Bison and Spradlin received $800 vouchers to purchase their breeding animal, and the two will return to San Antonio in 2013 to show their animals during the breeding show.
