As one of the breeds with the highest number of entries here at the National Western Stock Show, it comes as no surprise that the Grand Champion drive of the National Hereford Female Show would be a packed event.
Before the selection of champions, the American Hereford Association recognized Tom and Tammy Boatman of Rockford, Illinois, as the winner of the peer-voted National Western Hereford Herdsman of the Year award.
In front of the stands filled with people, judge Troy Thomas of Harold, South Dakota, and associate judge Brian Barragree of Absarokee, Montana, selected their champion females.
To begin the day, JCS Tater Tot 3560, owned by Kristin Fawcett of Fawcetts Elm Creek Ranch, Ree Heights, South Dakota, was named Grand Champion Horned Heifer. SULL TCC Diana 4064B, owned by Sara Sullivan of Dunlap, Iowa, claimed the Reserve Grand Champion Horned Heifer title.
Grand Champion Polled Heifer honors went to R Anastasia 3023 ET owned by the Barber Ranch of Channing, Texas. Churchill Lady 3290A ET, owned by Sage Krebs of Gordon, Nebraska, was named Reserve Grand Champion Polled Heifer.
