Red Angus steer shows
« on: March 23, 2019, 05:15:09 PM »
Is there any demand for Red Angus steers at all. Do they have like a appendix cross bred class at the Junior National? I have heard that.......like at houston or something similar....they don't want them looking like they are th influenced....or have freaky bone. Is that accurate.....I wonder out loud. I always wondered about a Durham Red steer class at the Shorthorn Nationals.......I assume that that would be a dead duck.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

I know Houston and San Antonio at least have Red Angus steer classes.  Classification is strictly visual (papers and breeders don’t matter) but I believe they want them to appear pretty much purebred. We have the classes in the books for Red Angus steers at OYE and Tulsa, but haven’t gotten enough numbers to get them out of the AOB’s yet. I believe Tulsa calls for at least one registered parent, OYE would be strictly visual, like Texas. I’m really not sure if that means they’re gonna have to look like purebreds or if looking like halfbloods is enough.

I’m curious to see how it works out, because we’ve been using Red Angus on our first calf heifers (mostly exotic crosses), and we calved out a set of Red Angus heifers this spring as well. We have a halfblood going to Tulsa, we’re going to nominate him Red Angus and see what happens,

There is a steer class at the NAJRAE show. It is in Grand Island, NE this year.
