The grand champion steer hasn't sold yet from what I understand. He is going to be bid off (not sure of the date) from what I have heard because of the huge amount of interest the opening bid is 40,000.
And yes, to answer your question, the Expo was a really good and tough show. There were a lot of good cattle, Kansas has gotten to be a pretty competitive place to show cattle. It was really nice to see such a good turn out, I thought the Jr. portion of the show went really well.
Just goes to show, nothing has to make sense anymore. There are some people out there that make money easy. The haves and the have nots. Look @ Paris Hilton. Drops out of HS and is an idol to many. Nothing makes any real sense.
for the most part it does. we tend to focus on the exception to the rule too much and give it more prominence than deserved. those behaviors are usually selected against in the stronger bloodlines that usually quietly succeed. kinda like the best cow in the herd is the one who goes unnoticed the longest. (not my saying)
