Simmentals Round out the Royal

October 29, 2017

After two long weeks of good stock and great people, the end of the 2017 American Royal is in sight. This morning, Chris Effling of South Dakota sorted the Junior and Simmental Show and Joe Seely of Texas judged the Open Simmental Show.

Chesney Steenhoek of Iowa especially had a good day in the Simmental ring. Winning the Champion Percentage Junior Heifer Calf, as well as the Champion Overall Purebred Simmental Heifer, success was granted to Steenhoek. Later on, Steenhoek’s Champion Purebred Simmental Heifer was named the Supreme Champion Female.

We appreciate all of the judges traveling from near and far to sort stock at the American Royal and want to say congratulations to all the exhibitors!
