Futurity

An open heifer or steer purchased at any of the Sanctioned sales will be eligible to show at the Iowa Junior Simmental Field Day that is held each year in June. There is a separate division for these animals during the show and prize money is divided among this division. The entry fee is just $10 per animal!
