Thanks Zach - it was good to see you again. Sorry we did not have more time to talk, but it looked like your heifer did pretty darn good too!
I really appreciate the post, and thanks to all those on Steer Planet whom I've relied on for information and education as I have worked to develop my little operation. It sure is nice to breed and raise one that wins once in a while.
A special thanks to Riley Laber (formerly of Bushy Park) for his awesome clipping and fitting for the open show. He also richly advised our daughter on show techniques. Could not have done it without him.
FYI, the dam is a P.B. Dream On cow. I posted baby pics of this guy back in March.
