The purpose of the Denton County Livestock Association and the Denton County Youth Livestock Show and Rodeo is to provide an opportunity for FFA, FCCLA, and 4-H members to exhibit their projects in a friendly, fair competition, and to educate the public about agriculture and related areas. Also to promote breeding, improvement, and sale purebred and commercial livestock. The fair gives youth the opportunity to learn responsibility and obtain information from others as well. The Denton County Livestock Association was founded in 1948. DCLA is governed by a constitution and by-laws.
