Lucia Johnston Lot #151
Howdy, my name is Lucia Johnston. I am 16-years-old, and I live on the historic Onward Ranch, where my handsome, homegrown steer, Bear, was born and raised. Bear is a Black Angus coming from my family’s commercial herd and is out of one of our most personable cows. Black Angus are known for their amazing marbling and fine bones with a higher meat yield. Bear is a short but stocky boy and has a long body with fine bones and a small head meaning a better yield of meat to waste. Bear is my seventh 4-H steer and I feel he is one of my best yet!
Scarlett Johnston Lot #152
Hi! I’m Scarlett Johnston, and I have a Black Angus steer named Whiskey! This year Whiskey hasn’t had a problem picking up weight, he loves his grain!

I will be selling Whiskey at the 63rd annual Show & Sale, and I hope to see you all there!
