Goliad County Fair and Rodeo begins Wednesday with agriculture mechanic project check-in and judging.
The annual fair and rodeo is bigger this year, said Goliad County extension agent Brian Yanta. The number of entries has gone up in all of the animal categories.
It's possible the increase in entries is a result of the higher premiums for animals that do not make it to the auction, he said. This year, hog exhibitors that do not make it to the market will receive $650.
The higher price will allow blue ribbon exhibitors to come closer to breaking even financially, he said.
Livestock show judging will begin Thursday with junior commercial heifers at 1 p.m.
