About 70 members of the Women Steering Business of Fort Worth also had a particular kind of exhibitor in mind as they created a decidedly crimson section in the seats overlooking the West Arena.
“We’re actually supporting young ladies who are raising steers,” club spokeswoman Becky Renfro Borbolla said. “We came with $45,000 last year. This year we brought $140,000.”
The club kept bidding after buying Shaggy, picking up Sayler Beerwinkle’s reserve breed champion Hereford out of Erath for $30,000 and Kate Hilburn’s reserve breed champion shorthorn out of Denver City for $24,000.
