The young heifers competed in Stadium Arena today. Ryan Rathmann of Slaton, Texas, was the judge of the NWSS Open Prospect Heifer Show. These crossbred heifers were colored as vibrantly as the steers across the ring, which made for an exciting end to our cattle shows at the NWSS!
The classes throughout the show were divided by weights. The lightweight market heifers ranged from 586 to 632 pounds, whereas the heavyweight heifers ranged from 800 to 940 pounds. Selected as the Grand Champion Prospect Market Heifer was Mason Walker of Prairie View, Arkansas. Mason’s heifer came out of class six and weighed in at 906 pounds.
To kick off the 12 classes of Open Prospect Breeding Heifers, we had a group of prospects ranging from 430 to 580 pounds. The Grand Champion Open Breeding Prospect Heifer was Whitney Walker of Prairie Grove, Arkansas. This champion weighed 910 pounds and was selected out of class 11.
Congratulations to the Walker family and all other exhibitors!
