2012 American Royal adds feeder calf show
A new feeder calf show for steer and heifer prospects has been added to the 2012 American Royal lineup. There is no sale with this show. The show will be Friday, Oct. 26, and is scheduled to coincide with the market animal shows.
The show is open to the world. All open and junior exhibitors are eligible to compete. There will be separate shows for steers and heifers. All calves will show by weight. They must be born in 2012 and weigh between 300 and 750 pounds.
All entries must be halter-broke to lead as they will show individually in Hale Arena. Heifer calves from other divisions may also enter in this show if all fees are paid.
In addition to class premiums, the grand champion steer and heifer will each receive a $300 premium and the reserve grand steer and heifer will each get a $200 premium.

The 2012 entry deadline is Sept. 10. Complete premium book information along with the entry form are available at http://www.americanroyal.com.
