I was able to go and watch the steer judging at White County Fair in Renolyds, Indiana. They had the steers split up into breed classes and further within their breed into 3 weight divisions: light, medium and heavy. There were Chi’s, Maine’s, Poll Herefords, Simmentals, Shorthorns, Angus, Charolais, Herefords, crossbreds and AOB (all other breeds) steers. Market heifers were grouped together, but not by breed and even dairy steers competed. Each breed division had a Grand Champion and then they competed against each other for the Grand Champion Overall Market Animal. The crossbred steer was the overall champion, with the Shorthorn steer coming in as the reserve.
