He moved a little bit better than the Newman calf.

From what I saw movement didn't mean much to him! I personally saw him pick calves on the walk that missed their stride by six inches! He picked a herf that literally drug it's back foot! Several high placing calves and one class winner that I know of that was buckin over on the front! Was the Martin calf the best I would say so but hell anyone that watched that class knows he was completely overwhelmed when it came to class 10. He pulled 16 in that class which woulda been fine if that's what he had been doing all show. When he would pull his ten he wouldn't even look at the other calves on the walk out which if you've never been there is a long walk. That to me shows a complete lack of respect for those kids especially when he would follow a calf on the way in for 15-20 feet pull him and then put his head down and walk back to the entry gate not even looking at the calves that entered in the meantime!

You could definitely get by with a straight front end.  Ours was pretty straight but he could still move.  There's a big distance between cant walk and one that actually fills tracks.  He wanted some length which almost precludes that ability in a heavily muscled steer.

The reality is there are so many good calves at FW plenty of people are going to be ticked - whether the judge hurries or not.  People raised heck about the judge from Colorado 3&4 years ago too.

There's a difference in being straight in the front and being crippled the class winner I was referring to the kid on the end of the halter was doing everything she could to keep the calf from falling! Props to her for getting the job done. I fully realize that there will be upset people every year at Fort Worth with the quality there is, however when the number of high quality animals that made the walk is as high as it was this year combined with the high number of lessor animals with Fs on there cheek we have a problem! There are several judges that I disagree with but even with those guys I can follow their pattern and make sense of my disagreement. In my opinion he had no consistency from class to class and seemed lost more than once. Bottom line he was asked to come judge Fort Worth, if he didn't know there was going to be over 1400 head and high quality than he might need to step out of Stillwater more often!

He was worried his health papers might expire before he got to Gainesville.
Ft Worth has been suspect to say the least a getting second tier judges, it's easier to use semi local maybe he'll do a good job, he's got cattle here and won't cost us quite as much and maybe we need to throw him a bone for being a buddy to Bob Watt back in the 60's and what is it gonna hurt us, we had nearly 3000 steers entered and if say 20 get ticked off and don't enter, so what?
And just maybe the second tier judge just might make it a bigger shot at winning, who knows, a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then.

I hadn't been to the fort worth steer show in 13 years I really enjoyed it and had a good time.   I think johnson did a good job, looks to me like if you are not DEEP DEEP ribbed and DEEP DEEP flanked  stay at home.  My pick was the middle wt.    I also liked the way he move fast and pulled them off the walk.  This is a major show, pull them from the first impression which takes 1/2 a second (keep that in mind when buying next years calf).  If you don't like it done that way you better not ever show hogs at a major at least the sifted steers get another look on the way out. And still have the possibility of getting pulled then.     I wondered all the way home today how in the world they get these calves so deep sided

P.s.  I wish I could breed "americans" that looked like that champ american. Wow.   They won the show the min he got through the classifling line. He was a beast.   So was the res "american".     I still wish I new the criteria the classifliers use or don't use.  He was a good steer none-the-less I liked him for res over all behind the mid weight I bet he would have made the sale as a crossbred.   Herd lots of people were dissappointed that those 2 got classed in.   But like it or not that's another steer show !!!!.

I was also at the show and have known Mark Johnson since college, Mark did what Mark thought was correct, although I didn't always agree with him (also thought he missed some calves) he did a good job. It was realy good to see him give his own  opnion instead of what has happened in the past where judges were paid to give another persons opnion for some side money. I wish all of the judges could have the morrals of Mark at least it was his opnion.
THANK YOU MARK FOR HAVING SUCH GOOD MORRALS I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT OTHER JUDGES WILL FOLLOW SUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
