Hi, I am Abbey from 5.2. During the school holidays I went to the Royal Show with my steer, Kermit who is a Square Meater. I purchased him when he was a calf and when we competed in the Led Steer Heavy Weight competition at the show he weighed 550kgs
For the competition I had to walk him in the ring in front of three judges and the crowd. In my class out of about 50 other steers Kermit won first place which put us into the final where out of all 300 Led Steers at the show he won Reserve Grand Champion.
I had originally purchased him from the breeder for $800 and sold him for $2,900 after the show. I also received $200 prize money.
I can't wait to get my new calf and do it again. If you are at the show next year, come and see me in the cattle ring!
