Day’s Cupid Shuffle fetches record breaking $300,000 bid

FORT WORTH - Twelve-year-old Ryder Day, of Meadow FFA, fought back tears of joy last Friday when he pulled off an improbable victory at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.

Day won the junior steer grand champion prize with his Hereford, Cupid Shuffle.

“I think I’m dreaming,” said Day after being selected grand champion.

Many in the stock show community called the feat historical, as it was the first time since 1982 that a Hereford breed had won the prestigious top prize in the competition. For many years the event has been dominated by European crossbreds, but 2020 broke the mold with Cupid Shuffle’s momentous win and a second Hereford, Dave, being selected as the reserve grand champion. Holly Thomas, 17 of Gatesville 4H, took the second prize with Dave.
