The yards were bustling this morning with a plethora of different activities. From stock dogs herding cattle to bison judging in the pens, there was not a quiet place to be found. One of the most interesting things going on was the National Lowline People’s Choice Show.
“Today marks the 17th annual event,” said Jan Effertz, sale manager.
There were six different divisions in the sale including open heifers, bred fullbloods and moderator bulls just to name a few. The cattle were paraded into the arena full of spectators ready to vote for their favorite one. Voting participants were given a ballot for each division. After picking their top three favorites, the ballots were then turned in to Effertz and her crew who count the votes to see which animal was the People’s Choice. The winner received the honor of being first in the sale order. The sale will be held this afternoon at 1 p.m. MST. 61 lots will be sold.
“I love this event,” Effertz said. “People getting the opportunity to interact with the consignors is great.”
Not many sales are like this one, the uniqueness of the event is what makes it so special remarked Effertz.
“As far as I’m aware, there isn’t anything like the [Lowline] People’s Choice Show anywhere else at the National Western,” Effertz said.
