Mosaic Youth Steer Show Grand and Reserve Champion
The grand champion and the reserve grand champion at the Florida Strawberry Festival’s Mosaic Youth Steer Show were chosen last night at the Patterson Co. Livestock Arena in the Grimes Family Agricultural Center.
Case Watson, a member of the Turkey Creek FFA Chapter, exhibited the overall grand champion steer, and Carter Howell, a member of the Durant FFA Chapter, exhibited the overall reserve grand champion steer.
Ninety-one exhibitors showed steers in the annual competition that took place at 7 p.m.
In the show, each steer is placed in one of nine classes based on the animal’s weight. Classes one through three comprise the lightweight division, classes four through six comprise the middleweight division, and classes seven through nine comprise the heavyweight division. The champion in each of the three divisions then competes for overall grand champion.
In the lightweight division, Emily Bryant won grand champion, and Spencer Baylor won reserve grand champion. In the middleweight division, Jack Gardner won grand champion, and Gerald Williams won reserve grand champion. In the heavyweight division, Case Watson won grand champion, and Carter Howell won reserve grand champion.
