THE SEARCH BEGINS
On a mission to find my very first heifer!
How my journey began:
WHR Lone Star Shorthorn Sale
Dad and I looking over the lots before the sale.
The WHR ranch manager pointed out some good females.
Lot 31 and Lot 15B
I had lot 31 and lot 15B picked out, but evidently I have good taste because everyone else did too. Unfortunately, these heifers weren't in my price range, so the search goes on. There is another sale this weekend.
Thank you Mr. Goodman!
I will leave you with a very exciting happening. I am a member of the Celeste FFA livestock judging team. My team and I have been working very hard to learn proper techniques for evaluating and selecting livestock including breeding heifers and market steers. We have been to many practice contests including Houston, San Antonio, West Texas A&M, and Clarendon College. In April, my team qualified for the state livestock judging, and we competed at the state contest in College Station at Texas A&M University. I ranked 144th out of 384 individuals. Not too bad for a freshman! I will be putting these judging skills to the test as we continue our search for my first heifer.
