National cattle show opens in Lawton

Lawton_Lawton is this year's host of the weeklong National Junior Maine-Anjou Cattle Show.  The competitors are all under 21, and they come from all corners of the country, making sure their cattle are in prime condition - washing, drying, even combing them for contest.

Tuesday morning they competed in team grooming, working together to make sure their cattle looked its best.  Later,  they took a stab at their salesmanship skills.  After all that grooming, you'd think it wouldn't be so hard to sell.  But the judges made it harder.

Fifteen year old Colby George from Altus has been competing for 4 years now and really likes meeting all the different people.  "It's a little bit surprising.  I usually don't get to see people from way off and here you get to do that," George said.

Wednesday night, they are having the showmanship competition, where they show their control on the cattle.  Thursday night is the bull show.

If you would like to see all the hard work these kids have done, the public is welcome to all events at the Great Plains Coliseum.
