It is a great show and they have a ton of cattle representing the less popular breeds like AB White parks, pinzgauers, betled Galloways, piedmontese, highlands, etc. Some even have theirs national shows there.

It looks like you had some good success showing this past month. I really like the fall yearling bull and the spring weanling heifer.

Love your display! Very classy.
Don't you use straw to bed your cattle on there? I sure would hate to deal with bare dirt if that is what it is.......

Thanks for the compliments all!

BC, those are actually wood chips. Most shows up here provide chip or bark. It is actually great bedding, just needs a good rinse to remove dust and make a nice pack. Most breeders with light colored cattle bring shavings to put over it though, because it will stain a white, silver or cream coat. Only dairy people use straw at shows up north.

That is interesting. We are only allowed straw for bedding here. There is just one bull sale that I go to that uses shavings. Thanks for the reply.
