Good luck to your daughter on the last show. Is this like 4-H where they then auction off the steer?

Yes! Sure is. The steer will be auctioned off at the FFA/4-H auction in Othello.

Well, she's done it before with sheep. It'll be a tough final episode for her, but it's a good growing lesson for a kid. You must be a good dad.  :tup:

Congrats to your daughter! It's so nice to see all the hard work pay off isn't it? I spent lots of years doing 4H horses and pigs at the grant county fair, but never won a grand champion (reserve champ one year  :) ) She can be proud of a job well done  :tup:

She has done quite well with sheep over the years. I forgot to mention she put together the Grand Champion Beef educational poster as well at Grant. Both of my kiddos do a good job. My son, tried hogs this year to change away from lambs. He was in the top half in market, as well as fit & show. No call backs, but feel he did well for changing species for this fair.

Congrats to your kid, C-Money. Figured it was about time for your annual post. Our fair starts Thursday. Evergreen Youth Livestock Show is Thursday night and the sale is Saturday night. We've got 20 market rabbit kids participating this year.  7 of my own club kids. and then a couple here and there from other clubs.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Congrats to your kids C-Money!  Almost always, the success of kids are attributed to very good parenting.  My grandkids in WY started showing their pigs this year.
