Hey everybody! Today is an updated post on picking out this year’s, (2017-2018) 4-h steer.
If you haven’t read it yet: Picking Out 2018 4-H Steer (Part 1)
On Saturday Tierra, Dad, and I went out into the feedlot and picked out our 4-h steers. We are stuck with them now because the rest of the steers got shipped off to Nebraska yesterday morning. The feedlot looks so empty now.
I ended up with the calf that I’ve had my eye on for quite a few weeks. He is a brocal (black and white face), and has an awesome side profile.
I was kind of uncertain as to if he was the best pick when we took him out of the feedlot the other day. But, when I went down to see him yesterday, I was glad that I picked him out! He’s got me convinced!
He also seems to have a good disposition and a nice personality. Which is always a HUGE thing when picking a steer that you will be haltering, petting, showing, and spending lots of time with. A steer with a good disposition will make your overall experience so much better.
Can’t wait to really start working with him! Tierra and I are planning on haltering them for the first time later this week.
We are so excited about this years steers! Tierra has already spent crazy amounts of time with hers.
See all of you later!
