Last month's 31st annual Shiner FFA Livestock Show brought in more than $170,000, topping the 2010 total by about $49,000.

Bruce Pohler, ag teacher and FFA sponsor, said he thought the boost in sales was a combination of factors.

"The oil and gas industry has gotten hot in our area and that pulled in some new buyers," he said. "Plus, the people in Shiner take care of these kids. They believe in what they do and there is a strong feeling about it."

Leading the way was Hannah Koenning who showed the grand champion steer. Hannah won reserve champion steer in 2010.
