Farm Foto Week

This last week I was spent the week at the Nebraska Cattlemen's Classic in Kearney Ne.  It is a large cattle show where many producers in Nebraska and other surrounding states bring some of their cattle and compete in the open show.  The Top bull and heifer in each breed then competes for top title in the Supreme Row contest.  All of the cattle entered into the open show are then sold to other cattle producers looking for top quality genetics to add to their herds.  The weekend is also full of events for the young cattlemen and cattlewomen of the future get to bring their 4H and FFA projects (steers and heifers) in to compete and get some well needed practice in cattle care and handling.  Events like this don't happen without outside financial support from cattle industry supporting business (feed dealers, bull services, equipment dealers, insurance companies, etc.).  I spent the week hanging out in a booth and visited with a lot of cattlemen and many of the other vendors at the show.  Here are some pictures from the show to make up for Farm Foto Friday!
