Exhibitors parade cattle in front of judges for prizes and glory at the West Texas Fair & Rodeo.
A big part of the fair is the cattle and other livestock shows.
This is where adults and youth get to show off months of hard work for judges who can award ribbons and cash prizes.
Exhibitors work at everything from training their animal to wear a halter and be led around to getting the animals hair to lay the right way.
"What we're trying to find is cattle that fit well into our industry, they're able to go out on grass and forage and raise calves that fit into our market," said Dwight Sexton, a judge at Monday's shows.
Teri Hollis, longtime cattle exhibitor, must have had just that today. She is the Cattle Foreman for the Elliot-Dyer Family Partnership and brought three Angus Heifers and three Angus Bulls to the show this year. Of those, she was awarded handsomely with one bull winning the top honor of Grand Champion and another taking the second spot with Reserve Grand Champion.
Even from newcomers like Cisco native, Brookly who showed her Angus Heifer Harley today, the event is exciting and educational. She took home third place for Harley and looks forward to next year.
The livestock judging will continue throughout the next few days with open competitions, including both youth and adult exhibitors.
