Tanner catches calf in Houston
Stockdale FFA member Tanner Maxwell was able to catch and halter one of 14 calves during the March 3 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo calf scramble.
Strength and determination took over for some, as scramblers began to capture the calves and pull them into the winners’ square.
In exchange for a successful scramble, Tanner will receive a $1,250 certificate to be used for the purchase of a registered breeding beef heifer, breeding dairy heifer, or market steer.
In 2013, he will return with his scramble project to the Houston Livestock Show for a special competition and a $250 bonus from his donor. Prior to the 2013 Show, exhibitors have the opportunity to compete in the Calf Scramble Progress Show as a means of judging their calf’s progress prior to showing at the Houston Livestock Show.
