TLBAA World Show - Ft. Worth, TX
As a graduating Senior, the 2015 TLBT National Show was Tud's last major hoorah as a TLBT member. It was a bitter sweet journey and although our time showing Longhorns is not over, a new chapter has begun.
Tud had three animals qualify for Nationals, two Class 9 heifers and his Class 31 steer. The steer and one of the heifers were full siblings and were born out of his first two calf crops. It was great to see them be so successful.
During his time at the show he participated in his last TLBT meeting where he had served as a Director and Officer the past two years, exhibited his animals during the TLBT show, continued to market his Senior Sale project, sold his project for $2,500, was awarded the Senior Sale Marketing Award, and earned a $1,500 Bright Futures Scholarship.
To say it was a successful end to his youth career would be an understatement. We are extremely proud of his achievements over the years. He has one more major event with the Autobahn Youth Tour in a week where we are sure he will once again prove himself.
