Hoosier Beef Congress A Success

Hoosier Beef Congress A Success
The largest single-state cattle show in the U.S. wraps up another successful year.

The 2014 Hoosier Beef Congress is in the books. The nation's largest junior show was another huge success. Approximately 1350 calves were shown, 700 kids participated in showmanship and around 100 head of cattle went through the All Star Sale.

"The committee was pleased with the entire event," said Keegan Poe, HBC Committee Member. "Things seemed to run very smoothly including the new system of trailer parking that was implemented. We have lots of positive comments."

Key results include:
Grand Champion Steer: Seth Martin
Reserve Grand Champion Steer: Samantha Morris
Third Overall Steer: Cole Mize
Fourth Overall Steer: Cheyanne Bowman

Fifth Overall Steer: Harper Henney

Hoosier Beef Congress: The 28th Hoosier Beef Congress is in the books and another successful cattle show pulled off by IBCA.

Supreme Heifer: Clayton Mize
Reserve Supreme Heifer: Becca Chamberlain
Third Overall Heifer: Maci Chamberlain
Fourth Overall Heifer: Cole Wilcox
Fifth Overall Heifer: Ashtyn Harvey

Live streaming of the entire show was once again a hit this year. Show streams and results can still be found through links on the Hoosier Beef Congress Website. Live streaming was provided by Walton Webcasting.

What fascinated me most during the weekend was the prospect of our fair in Johnson County. It is going to be incredible from what I saw of those who showed at Congress. Every night on our drive home the discussion of the county fair was the topic in the pick-up truck.

Calves from Johnson County held high places at Hoosier Beef Congress, both steers and heifers. I couldn't be more proud of each of these hard working families; We are going to have a fun and competitive fair in 2015.

And how did the Campbell family do? Well, no animal or human was hurt or maimed during the fitting process, calves behaved beautifully in the ring with the kids and not one of our calves placed last in their class – we consider that a huge success!
