clonefan- what was the steer?


He had some of the thickest legs i have ever seen(or you could just say hairy)

Zak

Saw him un fit and he was the real deal.  Huge bone/legs and sound, Pretty enough and lots of muscle.  Complete is the best word to describe him.

He was a My Turn x De Ja Vu cow. 

I was editing videos at home......watching it on liveauctions.tv webstream......texting back and forth with Goretska's.

 After he won Division 2, and I started getting phone calls about how good he looked, I grabbed my camera's and went down to KC and filmed, hoping to capture MY TURN's first MAJOR win with a steer......and I did!

I viewed the raw footage last night and you guys are gonna love this video series.  Hope to get started on it later in the week.

Great looking set of steers.  Sorry I missed the show. 

Does anyone know the story on the Reserve Champion Steer picture in the sale.

http://www.showchampions.com/Image/Show/c3aa03dc-04b8-457e-966e-a9ad7ca02923

 There are three nuns in the picture.  Are they related to the family?  Was a portion of the sale donated to them?  I am sure there is a good story behind the photo.

Little sisters of the poor is one of the charities some of the buyers donate meat to.

the eye and the work appear worth more than the purchase price.

that kind of stuff happens often with those guys. Stierwalts steer that won NAILE a couple years back was a skinny 1500 calf from arkansas. thats the beauty of getting to go through 1000's of calves a year and being able to wait to see the green ones start putting on weight. and of course being able see the potential sure helps

Its CALLED THE ECOMONY AND THE ELECTIONS.  Everyone is running scared right now just ask any retailer, wholesaler or manufacturer how their sales or holding up!!  Watch the news and look for any good indicators out there. It may get better after the elections I for one am holding my breath as a retailer.

BTW I would take $60,000 in a heartbeat and be glad that someone is still willing to "donate  money".

You probably need to reread Matt's Blog......it doesn't say "Goretska's" bought the steer for $2200......because they didn't.  I don't know EXACTLY who bought him first, but I do know that Kevin Bremer (who I think actually bought him first), Chad Foreman and Nick Rieman were all involved with the steer in some manner, before Tracy ever got ahold of him.

All I know is.....I'm just tickled they all did what they did......'cause it worked out pretty dang nice! And I was sure to personally thank all of them that were there.

Zak.....the steer was raised in Nebraska by Thunker's, and was in a sale with Mark Landgren.  I got a pre-show interview with them at the Royal that turned out nice.
