It was full steam ahead for the Firethorne Stampede auction team, which purchased 17 animals at the recent Katy ISD FFA Livestock Show and Auction. The team had the winning bid on the Grand Champion Goat, Grand Showman Goat, and Grand Showman Pig.
“We look forward to the Katy ISD Livestock Auction every year and especially this year, with one of our Firethorne visitor center guides, Katy Taylor senior Kathryn Jones serving as her school’s FFA chapter president and sweetheart, as well as FFA district treasurer,” says team spokesman Wayne Meyer. Meyer is general manager of the 1,400-acre Firethorne master-planned community in Katy/Fulshear.
Since 2006, the Firethorne Stampede auction team has invested approximately $187,000 in auction animals to raise scholarship funds for Katy ISD FFA students.
