Behind the Scenes
As I am writing this I am sitting in a lawn chair with my feet propped up on a cooler. I see cattle all around me in a variety of colors. They have been freshly washed and blown dry until their hair is full of shine and fluff. People are mingling with friends they only get to see a couple times a year. Can you guess where I am?
A cattle show. To be exact I am exhibiting Hereford and Charolais at the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo. Located just minutes from downtown and a few miles from many subdivisions sits Kemper Arena, home to the American Royal. People come from across the county to exhibit cattle, sheep goats and pigs…A hobby for many, but a marketing tool for most.
I would like to share with you a few video clips I have taken the last couple of days highlighting what goes on behind the scenes before show day.
