Jayten was so excited to show “Lily” in the PeeWee Hereford showmanship. Thanks to our friend Emilee for letting him use her heifer.

So very proud of these girls! They did a great job in showmanship. MJ won her class and was Champion Overall Angus Showman. Emma also won her showmanship class and competed for overall.

Little J loved helping the Holt family. One of the things we really love about showing cattle is all the families we get to spend time with. The older kids are helpful and mentor the younger ones. We always enjoy catching up with our cattle friends.

We were very humbled for the girls to do so well this weekend. They both have worked really hard with their animals. A lot of hours go into preparing cattle for a show. So much work has to happen at home before we even start loading the trailer. The saying, “It takes a village,” certainly is true when it coming to raising and showing cattle. The whole family plays a part in our kids having the opportunity to show cattle.

It also takes a lot of volunteers and sponsors to put on junior livestock shows, and we are grateful for those giving their time and resources to make this possible.

So very thankful for this man who works hard every day and sacrifices for our family. We definitely appreciate that he spends his Father’s Day weekend at a show. I love seeing him with cows and our kids.

I was getting a little sentimental, okay a lot, and looked back at our other years at this show. Here are a few other years I have blogged. A LOT has changed and improved since our first one….
