The Lincoln County Steer and Heifer Team made a good showing at the Georgia Junior Beef Futurity held at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry Thursday, July 17, through Saturday, July 19.

The weekend began with the showmanship competition on Thursday. Local exhibitors placing in showmanship were: C.J. Goldman, 10th place, 10th-grade division; Carson Goldman, fifth place, sixthgrade division; and Tanner Aycock, fourth place, fourth-grade and under division.

The number of competitors in each grade level ranged from 25 to 40.

On Friday morning, the exhibitors and their families worked feverishly to prepare for the steer show.

After Carson Goldman's Appendix Shorthorn won first-place honors in class, the 4-Her later returned to the ring to capture the All Other Breeds Reserve Championship.

In a spectacular futurity debut, Tanner Aycock and his Lincoln County-bred Simmental took top honors in class. His steer went on to win the Reserve Champion Simmental title.

As the day progressed, four show team members prepared their Crossbred steers for the final breed division of the day. The results were as follows:

.. Division 1 - Sadie Partridge, seventh place.

.. Division 2 - C.J. Goldman, second place; Ivie Aycock, sixth place; and Justin Ashmore, eighth place. Goldman's steer was named the reserve champion for Division 2.

.. Division 3 - C.J. Goldman, second place.

With the steer show a matter for the history books, several team members anxiously awaited the start of the heifer show on Saturday.

C.J. Goldman's Percent Simmental Heifer earned a second-place nod from the judges; whereas, in the Commercial Breed classes, Tanner and Ivie Aycock both competed in Division 2, with Tanner placing fourth in Class 45, while Ivie took sixth place in Class 42.

Another Lincoln County newcomer to Perry this season was Bentley Beggs. Both of Beggs' heif- ers competed in the same class, earning third and fifth-place ribbons.

"I'm very proud of the members of our steer and heifer show team and their parents for their participation in the Georgia Junior Beef Futurity," stated Monte Stephens, Lincoln County extension agent for 4-H and agriculture. "They represented our county well, and we look for continued success throughout our show season."
