With some last-minute grooming help from his father, Tim (background), Ty Goossen of the South Cottonwood 4-H Club prepares to lead his Angus spring heifer into the show ring at the annual 4-H Spring Beef Show held Saturday at the Marion County Faigrounds. As it turned out, Goossen had reason to smile: his heifer won the top prize in its age category, then won the top prize for all Angus heifers. Rickey Roberts, Marion County extension agent, said this year’s spring show was the largest one he’s been a part of yet. Complete results of the show were not available by press time.
