The 74th annual Hill Country District Junior Livestock Show kicks off at 6 a.m. Friday morning with the traditional Cowboy Breakfast at a new location, the Hill Country Youth Event Center, 3785 Texas Highway 27.

The free breakfast of sausage wraps and coffee will be served until 8 a.m. by 4-H and FFA members. 

Primary sponsors are the Kerrville Convention and Visitors Bureau (KCVB) and Peterson Health.

The smoked sausage comes from Opa’s Smoked Meats of Fredericksburg, Mamacita’s of Kerrville provides the tortillas. Richard Taylor is cooking, and EntertainMart of Kerrville is furnishing the coffee.

For entertainment there will be the annual Cow Chip Toss, pitting Kerr County officials against their City of Kerrville counterparts in a test of political arm strength. The county has the reigning champion tosser, but the city hopes to get the drop on them this year.

Also there will be the “Almost Famous” Goat Milking Contest featuring local “celebrities” attempting to milk real-live goats.

KCVB president and CEO Charlie McIlvane said that while the venue has been changed from the county courthouse lawn to the youth event center, the breakfast will still be served outdoors, weather permitting, to preserve the authenticity of eating breakfast the way cowboys do.

He said the new location should permit participants more time for fellowship and conversation, as it will not have to be cleared as quickly.

For information, phone the KCVB at 792-3535.
