Cheyanne wrangled her way to an impressive 12th place finish with her Charolais Cross steer at Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Congratulations!

Dobie High School‘s Cheyanne Bravo successfully showcased her Charolais Cross steer at the prestigious Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Placing 12th out of 66 contestants in her class, she earned an auction sale slot, ensuring a minimum guaranteed amount of $8500 with the potential for additional premium funds generated through the auction proceeds. Cheyanne obtained her steer through participation in the Houston calf scramble in 2023, where she not only received the hard luck award but also a certificate toward her animal. Her dedicated efforts in raising the animal over the past 9 months have yielded commendable results. Notably, this marks Dobie FFA’s inaugural participation in the HLSR steer auction, further underscoring the significance of this achievement!
