The New Year has made its appearance, and on its heels the 2019 Burnet County Livestock Show. Students from Burnet and surrounding counties have been preparing for this weekend from sun-up to sun-down, and have dedicated their time, hard work, and determination to bring their best stock and Agricultural Mechanics projects to the show.

Burnet High School senior Brandon Schwausch has been showing broilers since sixth grade, and has performed well throughout his Livestock Show career. He even earned Reserve Grand Champion his first year competing.

“My parents have been a huge help this whole time,” Schwausch said. “I couldn't do anything without them, or my ag teachers, especially Mr. (Brandon) Evans. It is amazing to have a teacher like him.”
