CommonGround: Cattle Show

Posted on August 16, 2011 at 8:55 AM by Iowa Corn

Fair season is winding down here in Iowa with the Iowa State Fair going on until Sunday.  A few weeks ago one of our CommonGround volunteers, Jill, wrote a blog post about her son showing cattle.  It seems that growing up on a farm in Iowa and participating in FFA and/or 4-H to show animals go hand and hand!  Below is a short blurb about the cattle show but you can read more of Jill's post at: http://www.cornfieldsandtractorwheels.com/2011/08/cattle-show.html


Cattle Show

Yesterday we entered 2 of our market steers in a local open cattle show to give JM some experience showing calves.  He spent every day washing, grooming and walking the steers.  They have become very close to him.  He couldn't wait to take them to the show and parade them around in the show ring.  This is only the 2nd time that JM has had the opportunity to show calves, and he enjoys every minute of it!
