For the fifth time in a row, Mikala Grady of Grandview 4-H won grand champion for her steer during the 83rd Johnson County Junior Livestock Show and Youth Fair. She also placed reserve.
Grady said placing both grand and reserve in the steer show was awesome.
“I have a whole lot of people who help me and we’ve all put in a lot of work to make this happen,” she said. “We were able to pull it all off together.”
Returning judge David Groschke of Reisel said Grady’s steers are some quality animals.
“Congratulations on those two cows,” he said. “That grand has a lot of good trim and that reserve is just super smooth and looks so complete from the side.”
Grady also claimed the grand champion swine this year, making it her third year in a row to win that title.
She has also won grand champ in recent years for steers and other animals at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, the Texas State Fair, the Arizona National Livestock Show and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
