On the 15th day of the National Western Stock Show, the yards were emptying out, the trade show was winding down and most of the cattle had been shown. However, the prospect steers were awaiting their time to set foot on “the Hill.”
Cash Pratt, a fourth grader from Pueblo, Colorado, has an entire show career ahead of him. As he and his steer, appropriately named "Panda," entered Stadium Arena today, he was thrilled to show in such a historic place.
“My favorite part about the National Western is the excitement,” Pratt said.
Pratt went on to win his class and the heaviest weight division. To wrap up the last of the cattle on “the Hill” for 2020, judge Shane Meier named “Panda” the Grand Champion Prospect Steer.
As tears of joy filled his parents eyes after a big win, it was safe to say both Pratt and “Panda” have a bright future in the show cattle industry.
