DCCI - ITLA Championship Show - 2000 - Page 2

The judges of the youth, halter & open were; Russell Fairchild, Lorinda Beals & Joe Valentine. They are serious show competitors and obviously capable judges at the highest level.

Six weeks prior to the Championship, DCCI had a problem. An all out effort was made to locate professional cattle show and fitting talent with no success. Over 3 dozen Longhorns were being entered and most were not even halter trained and much less show trained. Russell Hooks, Bobby Dube, Allen Hill, Kitty Hold, Dar Geise and numerous professionals from the Hereford and Angus industry were offered the job. No takers.

"Shadow Magic", a two year old "Shadow" daughter won 1st. in Non Halter Class #11, then was awarded Grand Champion Sr. Heifer. She is owned by George Gilman, Houston & exhibited by DCCI.
