Kids enjoyed showing off their poultry in showmanship!
The Miniature Hereford Junior Show kicked off a full day of showing in Stadium Arena beginning at 8:00 a.m.
When the smaller cattle soak up the spotlight in the show ring, it is only fitting that their pint-sized partner does as well.
The Open Prospect Steer Show began in Stadium Arena at 9:00 a.m. Today's classes are being sorted by Lance Sennett of Waynetown, Indiana. Classes have been competitive.
