First and foremost, the first show of the 2015 JFCA Points Series kicked off in Kissimmee. Not only did our association have a record number or calves entered, but also we had a record number of

August FCW Report

By now, the novelty of swimming and summer has worn away and most of us are looking forward to fall. In a few short weeks, kids will return to school (and all the parents said Amen) and soon after we’ll celebrate the start of the 2015-16 college football season.
