My son had him.  I added that picture to my facebook profile, and tagged Trausch Farms in the picture recently.  I felt like it was the best picture of the steer that we had.  I only uploaded the picture to help give credit where it was due, to the folks who helped us get the steer.... Trausch Farms, Kirk Baker, and ultimately Dustin Glover.


Despite never really getting quite big enough, he was a fantastic steer.  On his best day, he was only 1280 lbs.  He had tremendous hair (and I don't just mean good hair, I mean TREMENDOUS), he was big boned, had a huge butt and hip, great disposition, and showed really well.  In late February he was 3rd overall steer at our county show & in March he was champion charolais at the Oklahoma Youth Expo.  The OYE is a terminal show, but he was bought by the Redlands Community College for their judging program.  I'm sure he's on someone's plate by now, but he was able to live another month or so to participate in their program & still be a showcalf.

I appreciate all the comments on the steer.  He was a good one.  At the OYE, all the kids who exhibit breed champions animals ride into the arena for the grand drive, in a stretch limosine.  There is a light show, music playing, confetti, and they REALLY put on a big show for the kids who have breed champions.  If you've ever witnessed the grand drives at OYE, you understand why it was such a big deal to put my kid in that limo.  It's an honor that very few kids ever experience.  I'm not saying we'll ever pull off that honor again, but we did it once.  <rock>

With a kid that works that hard and likes it that much + a family like yours behind him, I wouldnt bet against him getting back there.

Thanks again. 

Yes, our county show is really tough.  If our steer had shown up in late February weighing 1300 or so, he might've won the county show, but not at 1220 like he was.  There were 10 steers in our little county in SW Oklahoma that would've qualified for the Sale of Champions at OYE this year.  They accept 70 total into the sale.  We ended up with only 8 steers in the sale, because two kids had two steers qualify.  Two breed champions at OYE were from my kids' school, ours and the AOB.  There are some families around here that know how to feed one, and they can pick the good ones.  It's a lot of fun!! (lol)

Congrats, nice steer and that would have been a tough fair at county level.

There are a few Counties in SW Oklahoma which would compete with any County in Iowa, and quite a few in Texas!
