Doc, thank you for responding! My calf is broke and doesn't mind the blower too much. He does swing away from the blower occasionally. Do you think that he would flip a half chute?

Are you the  parent or the kiddo? 4h or FFA?    Do you have a blower?   Having family fun is the main thing.  Leave your perfection hat at home.  You will probably see beginners with barely any show supplies to near professionals with decked out gooseneck and huge shoeboxes.  Dont worry about what you dont have but what you need.  If you just showed up with the steer and halter, you could probably borrow everything else.  Take these if you can:  water bucket, feed pan,feed,  blower, comb, show halter, showstick, pooper scooper.  You can take water hose.  I like to get there, blow them off, shampoo, conditioner, rinse and spend a lot of time blowing them dry.  After they are dry, feed them.  After eating see if they will drink.  Then relax and they should lay down. 30 minutes or so before show, get them up, blow all the dirt out, comb all hair forward (if they have any).  Lightly spray show sheen and blow it in hair to dry.  Put show halter on and you are good to go.

Bigger shows, you would clip the calfs hair before leaving barn and extensive touch up at show.  You can still do that at Jackpot shows if you are experienced or know someone that can trim the wild hairs
I'm part of 4-h. This is my first year showing. I do have a blower but don't have a chute.

Here are some pictures of my Monopoly Money calf.
What do y'all think of him? I try to blow in some double dip and some Green Stuff twice a day and will rice root and work legs with roto brush. Also will try to wash whenever there's a  warm day ( which is very uncommon this time  of year😪)Any suggestions/ comments about anything else I should be doing ?

The Big Show / Half chute vs. full chute

Hey y'all,
I was wondering what everyone thinks about the half chutes / what's good and bad about them.
The aluminum full chute from Sullivan just seems so expensive!
Thanks!
