For the first time in about five years, I’ll be back on a show cattle crew. My bro has five head of Limousin in at Farmfair this year, three of which he’ll be selling in a month at the Pacesetter Sale, and he was a little short-handed for today and tomorrow. So I got called up from the ranks. Yikes.
While I’m not at all sure about being ready for the extremely early mornings (there are times I’ve been up at 2am for show day), long days (we tie out at 7pm, then clean the stall up to be ready for the next day) and cold (we try to keep the barns cool for the comfort of the cattle) I just keep telling myself it’s only two days – I can handle it. We’ll see.
