The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is known for showcasing some of the best livestock in the state of Texas, and this year’s Grand Champion Steer is no exception. His name is Maverick, and he is a 1,400-pound, 19-month-old Charolais-Longhorn cross from Canyon, Texas. Maverick is the proud product of a partnership between 15-year-old Cade Burns and his family.
After a rigorous judging process, Maverick was crowned Grand Champion Steer at the show, making Cade the youngest Grand Champion in the show’s history. This is no small feat, as the competition was fierce and included some of the best steers in the state. Cade’s hard work and dedication to Maverick paid off in the end, and his family couldn’t be more proud.
Maverick’s victory is a testament to the hard work and dedication of Cade and his family. The Burns family has been raising cattle for generations, and Cade has been showing livestock since he was five years old. Cade and his family put countless hours into training Maverick for the show, and it paid off in the end.
Cade is now the proud owner of a $50,000 check, a championship belt buckle, and a champion steer. He plans to use the money to purchase more cattle for his family’s ranch and to help pay for his college education.
Cade Burns is an inspiration to all young people who are interested in raising livestock. His hard work and dedication to Maverick paid off in the end, and he is now the proud owner of a Grand Champion Steer. Congratulations to Cade and his family on their incredible achievement!
