Can We Really Blend Shows and ERTs? . . .YES
Dr. Scott Greiner
Cattle shows have existed nearly as long as cattle have been domesticated. Historically, shows and exhibitions have played an important role in the promotion of breeds and breed ideals and for individual breeders and programs, created a forum for discussion and interaction among cattlemen, provided youth education and development, contributed to valuation of livestock, and have been a tool for genetic change.
