FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The champ is here!
A steer named Bentley belonging to Aven Horn of Abilene, Texas took the crown Friday for Grand Champion steer at the Fort Worth Stock Show.
The 2-year-old steer weighed in at almost 1,400 pounds.
Horn, 13, said steer-showing runs in the family.
“Ever since I was born, my dad and mom both did this when they were little, so I was raised around it but I started showing steers in third grade,” said Horn. “He (Bently) has a great personality and always so loving and kind towards people. Even if we’re having a bad day, he’s always still so kind.”
Horn competed against young people from all but one Texas country for the top prize.
Last year’s grand champion sold for $200,000.
Horn said she plans to use her winnings for college. She hopes to go to Texas A&M.
