Sanctioned cattle show set for Events Center

The Hamilton County Cattlemen’s Association expect more than 100 head of show cattle for its sanctioned show in the Events Center on Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Webster City on Sunday. The young exhibitors are all members of Iowa Junior Beef Breeds Association.

The show offers classes for breeding heifers and market steers and heifers for all breeds, including full-size and lowlines. Exhibitors receive points on their placings which accumulate toward year-end awards and scholarships. The IJBBA show season begins at the Iowa Winter Beef Expo in mid-February and ends with the Labor Day Classic with weekend show throughout the state.

The champion market animal and the champion breeding heifer each receive $500 top prize. The reserve champions receive a $250 award.

Minnesota Simmental breeder Roger Kahler will judge the show.

The Cattlemen’s chuckwagon will be on the grounds serving hamburger and rib eye sandwiches.

The show starts at 11 a.m. on Sunday. There is no admission charge to the fairgrounds or the arena.
