Who We Are

The Heart O’ Texas Livestock Show, presented by Bar None Country Store, is held in conjunction with the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas. The facility’s mission is to produce events for education, entertainment, and agricultural experiences at the premier multi-use facility while giving back through youth scholarships and having a positive economic impact to Central Texas. Extraco Events Center and the Heart O’ Texas are proud to offer year-round opportunities for youth development.

The Heart O’ Texas Livestock Show continues to bring in some of the best livestock and exhibitors from across the State of Texas. From Livestock Shows to Contests alone, we awarded over $100,000 in scholarships last year!
