The 13-hundred pound crossbred steer named “Here I Am” was shown by Stanton High School senior Flint Newman who says it is the result of a lot of hard work.

The buyer was Coors Distributing of Fort Worth. The steer will go to the Fort Worth Zoo and later to a ranch. The Junior Sale of Champions generated $3.3-million dollars for the youth exhibitors.
