The Junior Market Steer Show today was sorted by three of some of the most respected livestock evaluators in the industry, Brandon Callis, Dave Allen and Mark Core. These three not only expressed how much they enjoy their time behind a microphone, but also the relationships that are built in and out of the show ring.
“Relationships are paramount to making this deal work,” Callis said.
The three of the judges spoke this morning about how in the livestock industry you develop such neat relationships and how vital those relationships are to keep them going.
As the youngest member of the steer show judge committee, Callis valued his time to spend in the ring judging with the other two individuals he has so much respect for.
“I am living the dream,” Callis said.
Allen has been to the National Western Stock Show exhibiting cattle since the 80’s and expressed how prestigious it is to be asked to come judge this steer show.
“It is an honor to work with people you have huge respect for in the industry and judging, as well as judge in a place I have been coming to my whole life with so much history,” Allen said.
When asked this morning if Core was excited to be here judging at the National Western, it almost caught him off guard.
“This is an opportunity you dream about being able to do,” Core said. “This environment is one I love so much. It has been a pleasure to be at the National Western.”
