What is the Lone Star Shoot-Out?
The Texas Limousin Association’s Lone-Star Shoot-Out is held in Fort Worth every year during the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. The Lone Star Shoot-Out is exclusively made for Limousin breeders and exhibitors. Each year, Limousin breeders across the U.S. will nominate either their whole herd or select heifers to be eligible to show in the Lone Star Shoot-Out. When heifers are nominated they will be marketed by both the breeder and the TLA as “Lone Star Shoot-Out Eligible” to potential exhibitors across the state. If an exhibitor purchases a “Lone Star Shoot-Out” Heifer and wishes to compete in the Lone Star Shoot-Out, the breeder will then pay an entry fee for each heifer. All nomination fees and entry fees will then go into a pot to be dispersed among the exhibitors who participate in the Lone Star Shoot-Out. Every exhibitor will walk away with a check!
