Beyond all the products for fitting and grooming, we had screw drivers, pliers, crescent wrench, tie wire, zip ties several different sizes, extra neck ties, vet wrap, first aid kit, Tylenol. Aspirin , red cups, extra show halters in black and brown and one with bling( I have know idea why), electrical tape, duct tape, hose, spray nozzle, baby wipes, terry clothes, probiotic paste, extra same keyed locks,  20 foot security cable, note pad, pens, markers. Antiseptic spray, neosporin, Vicks vaper rub ( we showed hogs as well) extra hose clamps for blowers. That is about all I can thank of at this time.

Acepromazine and a 50 foot rope for the tough ones, a cattle pump for fill along with a case of 7-Up, and a bicycle pump for the places that need smoothed out. :o  Are those things bad?

I'm pretty sure any rope over 30' is against the rules...

I keep extra washers for the ends of the water hose.  I can't tell you how many have gotten "borrowed".  They're cheap enough to share lol

This is a great idea.
I always carry VitaCharge paste or boluses.  I feel it helps cattle drink if they won't, not sure if it actually works but it makes me feel better.

BLOOD STOP POWDER!!! --- Had a young horned heifer pop a horn cap off in the chute on the way out to the show ring, talk about a mess!! Handy for any other last min. cuts you cant get to stop bleeding.

Thermometer--- Had another heifer get stressed and sick at her first show. I wanted to check her temp but didn't have one and the on site vet was going to charge $60 to use his

Aspirin paste-- in case above incident where I need to take the edge off a fever on a calf that catches a cold

I had a char heifer once that would bloat when she got to a show.  Different water, stress etc.  I always keep one of the small bloat-eze bottles in the bottom of the tack box now.  Thermometer is also a must.  A bottle of Ace is never a bad idea.  Someone always needs it (even if it's not one of your own cattle).

Gilts always seem to come in heat at the fair, Our market class is a day or 2 after we move in so no problem there, but showmanship is later, we found if we smear a little bit of Vick's on their nose they can't smell the other pigs and we have fewer fights. We had a 300 pound barrow jump a 4 foot fence to get away from a gilt in heat chasing him in the ring.
