One of the most popular shows for both Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors and patrons is the Junior Market Steer Show. Over a three day period fifteen different breeds of cattle are paraded in front of one judge to determine the winners who have the opportunity to sell in the Junior Livestock Auction. Market steers are judged on traits such as potential carcass value, and balance and eye appeal. During the last Friday night rodeo performance in the AT&T Center the Livestock Show is given the opportunity to showcase one of the most prestigious line-ups for Texas steer show participants. Folks from across the state make it a point not to miss this performance on the rodeo schedule, so they can witness this event each year. Those who attend this performance will have the opportunity to admire each Champion Steer and Reserve Champion Steer from all breeds shown by the young contestants during the Steer Show. The Champion Steer Drive is where each contestant will have one last chance to present their steer to the judge to decide who will represent the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo as Grand Champion Steer and Reserve Grand Champion Steer.
