Weighing 1,357 pounds, this year’s grand champion steer of the 81st-annual Uvalde County Junior Livestock Show was fifth-grader Kylen Grissom’s exotic middleweight, Fire.

With this win, exhibiting grand champion steers officially became a family tradition, with Kylen’s older sister Baylee showing three consecutive grand champion steers at the UCJLS – in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In this year’s show, her exotic heavyweight entry won reserve breed champion.

It was Uvalde Classical Academy fifth-grader Jazzlean Gomez’s American heavyweight that won reserve grand champion.

The steer show was judged late Friday afternoon.

For the British division, Flores Elementary fifth-grader Cayden Seiler won breed champion with her heavyweight, while Knippa eighth-grader Ryan Santos won reserve champion with his lightweight entry.
