For 13-year-old Michael Geidel, showing cattle is his favorite way to spend his spare time. Geidel plays football and baseball, too, but he thinks finding a way to juggle his chores and cattle shows with practice and games is well worth the effort.

“Showing cattle is a lot of fun,” said Geidel, who has been showing cattle for three years. “Plus, you learn a lot along the way like how to feed your steer, how to clip his hair and how to set him up in the show ring.”

Geidel and his sister, Megan, entered two steers at the 2008 Davison County Winter Calf Show at the fairgrounds in Mitchell, SD on Dec. 30-31, 2008. Ninety head were entered at the two-day show, with cattle from Iowa, South Dakota and Minnesota.
