Cattle Show...

The 4-H Beef show was held on Friday. A LOT of work goes into showing cattle. Some of it is work on the cattle...
but I think this is the the most important part. Everyone needs to look good in the show ring!;)...

At the beginning of the show all 4-H members come into the ring and recite the Pledge of Allegiance...


Then the 4-H pledge...



Next up is Rookie Showmanship. All first year beef members participate and it gives them a chance to practice walking their calves in the ring...




This is my cousin and her steer, Mr. Brown. Mr. Brown was like a big puppy....so tame. He was a little jumpy the day of the show, but I get a little nervous around crowds also, so I can't really blame him...





Bobbi Ann...Another cousin...
Bobbi Ann got Champion Charolais Heifer.





Mary Kate...Another cousin ( I have a lot;)...
















I like Shorthorns. I think they are pretty....or handsome if it is a steer;) but in this case it is a heifer so she is pretty...









It's important to keep their head up...(or so I'm told)






















Grand Champion Heifer....
His brother got Reserve Grand Champion Heifer. I am sure their parents were very proud. Good job guys!











Bobbi Ann is on the left. The little girl on the right got County-Bred Reserve Grand Champion Heifer. She was so excited.













After the heifer show, it is lunch time followed by the steer show which always draws a large crowd...














Emily and Mr. Brown..


















































I like Shorthorns...but I think I like dairy steers better. I grew up on a dairy farm, so I guess that is where my heart is:)


















Brad's cousin, Jake...








































Mary Kate...




































































Mary Kate got Champion Hereford Steer...













































































Brad helps with the behind-the-scenes stuff. He is always there to help the girls in and out of the ring...



























Here is Mary Kate in the Grand Champion drive...




























The ring gets a little crowded...




























































Grand Champion Steer...































Reserve Grand Champion Steer...
