Hereford Steer Wins Reserve Grand at Fort Worth
Twelve-year-old Allie Henrie, Wolfforth, Texas, exhibited her 1,320-lb. Hereford steer to the overall reserve grand champion steer title in the junior show at the Fort Worth Stock Show Feb. 4-5, beating approximately 2,600 steers. It’s the first time since 1978 that a Hereford steer has been grand or reserve overall. Henrie also earned a record $200,000 from Coors Distributing Co., Fort Worth, for the steer in the Sale of Champions Feb. 6.
The Henries purchased the September 2009 son of JCS Showtime as a 400-lb. prospect from Jay Carr of Carr Cattle Co., Sudan, Texas, and Eric Drager, of Drager Cattle Co., Texaco, N.M., who raised him.
