For those of you who have never been to the Ft. Worth steer show.  The scene early on that showed all the calves surrounding the arena, with a few in the middle of the arena.  Those in the middle made the first cut, and all those around the outside are most likely getting the gate.  There were about 67 steers per european class, and only about 12-15 even make the first cut to go to the middle of the arena to actually get judged.  First impressions are everything.

And when showing in a rodeo arena, it takes an unbelievably thick and deep steer to not just disappear out there.  I don't know if I would go so far to say that the top end at Ft. Worth is better than the other majors such as Kansas City, Louisville, or Denver, but there is no other show that can even come close to how deep the quality goes in every class.  With 2000+ steers at the show, there are a lot of HIGH DOLLAR steers that not only don't make the sale, but actually get the gate.

Ft. Worth steer show is definitely something everyone needs to see at least once.
Winning isn't everything, but you have to want it.

We have a Gert steer for San Antonio and if he doesnt make it there we will be in Houston. Both of these shows have a gert breed show. There was no need to go to Ft Worth since all ABC's (American Breed Crosses) show together which would have been tough to make a sale slot for a gert influenced steer.

And Ft Worth steer show is a sight to behold, very impressive animals.

You've got to be thick-skinned to show at Fort Worth.  A lot of people want to overreact because they hit the gate.  It takes a lot of patience and "want to" to stay with it long enough to get good enough to give yourself a chance to get lucky (how's that for a tongue twister).  Anyone that wins there is lucky - but you have to be real good to have a chance to get lucky.

Day didn't raise him, but they do breed some good ones.  They bought the Fort Worth calf out of South Dakota (at least according to the Breeder).

Day's own cattle have been doing real good at the slick shows such as Houston.  They are one of the better breeders down here.
Do you know whom the breeder is?
Its not where you come from, but where your going that counts!
