His front end is pretty coarse and his right front has knee issue. He would have placed at about the same spot in most county fairs up here too. Better than the vast majority, but if a barn burner shows up, he will get second. Congrats to the young lady on a job well done!

I am a novice at this sort of game! However, that is exactly what I saw that generated my comment.

You are catching on Raven! I also think he is a touch small footed for his bone/frame, and that combined with heavy feeding typical of show steers probably did not help his knees to stay clean and smooth. BTW, you can tell he is clubby bred just by those ears! There is something in the set, shape and shag that is only found in clubbies.

I don’t post on the show thread, mainly because we don’t show. The past couple of years we have been helping out a young lady, she is keeping her steer at our home place that was set up for showing when our boys showed. Jessica and her mom Sarah Jane have been a joy to watch, they have worked so hard with both calves. The first calf they didn’t keep at our place it was for the spring show so they were able to keep it at the 4-H facility. The second calf was for our fair they offer facilities for kids to keep the calves at the fairgrounds but it is almost an hour drive for them twice a day. She did a great job with her first calf and stood reserve grand champion. Our son Jacob helped her find her fair calf, she wanted one with color Jacob was just trying to find good and within budget. I think he found good and black is a color just not what Jessica had in mind. She named him Red so he does have a colorful name. Ok enough with my rambling tell me what you think of him Jacob is hauling him to the fair grounds this morning.


This photo was taken a couple months ago I woke up and found red out and eating my day lilies. Oops


This photo was taken last night, they have done all they can do now it will be up to the judge. He is a sporty looking calf, he has a good finish on him now we just wait and see.
