Quality is something any cattleman can appreciate. During the National Western Stock Show Pen-of-Three Chianina Bull and Heifer show, the dedication behind the breeding programs of the Chianina exhibitors was evident in the quality and consistency of the bulls and heifers shown. Judge Dustin Frank of Crook, Colorado, evaluated the pens of cattle to select his champions in front of Chianina enthusiasts in the Livestock Center Auction Arena.
To begin the day, Pen 2111, owned by Charlie Tesch of Tesch Brothers, Watertown, South Dakota, was named Grand Champion Pen-of-Three Chianina Bulls. Pen 2115, owned by Esch Cattle Company of Unadilla, Nebraska, claimed the Reserve Grand Champion Pen-of-Three Chianina Bulls title.
Grand Champion Pen-of-Three Chianina Heifers was Pen 2117H owned by Justin Holt of Holt Bros., Aberdeen, South Dakota. The pen included JHC Ms. Destiny 0309B, JHC Ms. Brandi 350B and JHC Ms. Barbie.
