In the show cattle arena, the old saying goes, “Don’t worry about the results of today’s show. Another day is another judge’s opinion.” For many cattle exhibitors, that means waiting and working on a calf for months before hearing what another judge has to say about the animal. That’s why South Dakota State University’s (SDSU) Alpha Gamma Rho (AGR) and Block and Bridle Steer Show is always a hit. Two consecutive days of shows, with two different judges, means exhibitors have two chances to change the stakes at this livestock exhibition.

This two-day event was located at the Swiftel Center in Brookings, SD, on Feb. 21 and 22, 2009. The event was hosted by the members of AGR and Block and Bridle and supported by the monetary gifts of sponsors. Volunteers work throughout the school year to make sure this show is competitive with other livestock exhibitions around the state. Six different states with 116 entries were represented at the event.
