*HORN SHOWCASE RESULTS
DCC Ranch e-News #118, 10-06-2017
Barnesville, OH -- Sept 30, Dickinson Cattle hosted the Ohio
satellite Horn Showcase regional measuring with Ed Callan as the
official. Data from Canada, Europe and satellite points all over
the USA were evaluated with final measurements at Lawton, OK on
Oct 5. After the task of calculating all data was completed the
awards were presented at the banquet Oct 6.
Three Horn Showcase Bronze awards were presented per class; tip
to tip is straight across, total horn is around the total curve
and a composite calculation which combines the tip to tip, plus
total and adding the base circumference inches. There were 474
entries with up to 4 measurements for each critter with 61
divisional classes at 32 locations from Belgium to Alberta to
California and back to Ohio.
Sincere compliments to President Tom Matott and the entire HSC
staff for organization, calculations and the professional way
the total program was handled world wide. Never in history has
an event exactly like this been executed with such simple

Although there are many virtues to the Texas Longhorn breed,
international horn measuring is like the Kentucky Derby to
cattle owners -- only one nose crosses the line first. The
numerical calculation of a winner, regardless of country, is
conclusive, at least until next year's contest.
