Calf Named Lunchbox Named Stock Show Grand Champion

View Comments

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) -  A European crossbreed named “Lunchbox” was the Grand Champion at the Fort Worth Stock Show.

Stock Martin, the 12 year-old boy who showed Lunchbox, said it was a dream come true.

“I’ve shown cattle my whole life so this has been a life-long goal,” he said.

Martin, who is from Hereford, Texas, said he and his dad “knew they had a good one” when Lunchbox was born.

Martin shared a tearful hug from his mother right after he won.

Saturday, as part of annual Junior Champions of Sale, Lunchbox will be sold.

Last year’s Grand Champion, Spider Monkey,  was sold for more than $230,000 and Lunchbox will likely bring as much, if not more.

Martin already has plans for the cash.

“Put it back into college,” he said. “Buy more steers, maybe win more shows.”
