For seven years Cody Lafrentz has had a routine every day that included taking care of steers so that he could take them to shows including the Calgary Stampede. And while his future no doubt has livestock and cattle in it, this past Junior Steer Classic was the last time he will show a steer at the event. He made the most it taking home the title of Grand Champion of the show.
The UFA Cattle Trail at the Calgary Stampede is a highly interactive showcase of the cattle industry.
Brad Mason, the Chair of the Calgary Stampede's International Youth Livestock Committee, talks about what these youth bring to their projects and why these scholarships go a long ways to helping them with their post-secondary education.
Youth are showing off their livestock and skills at Summer Synergy in Olds this week, in hopes of getting a post-secondary scholarship through the Calgary Stampede's Youth Livestock Supreme Championship and Scholarships. Madison Sibbald is the 6th generation of her family to raise Pure Bred Red Angus on a ranch near Cochrane.
On Sunday, youth from across western Canada and the U.S. will be showing steers in the annual Calgary Stampede Steer Classic in the Nutrien Western Events Centre.
