One of the great things about county fairs are all the young people raising and showing animals. Raising and showing animal projects teaches and imparts respect, accountability, work ethic, and yes… humility (farm animals will always end up teaching everyone humility at one time or another).

A pair of brothers at the 2021 Douglas County Fair in Castle Rock, CO learned all those lessons and more. Job Knight (15-years-old) and Silas McQuate (9-years-old) also learned how to be respectful and gracious while sweeping the top Market Beef Steer awards at the fair and setting auction records in the fair’s 2021 Junior Livestock Sale.

I was able to get a chance to talk with Job and Silas, along with their parents Seth and Jenn, on the last day of the Douglas County Fair. You can find my article and photos about their accomplishments on The Fence Post magazine’s website: https://www.thefencepost.com/news/oh-brothers/

Big brother Job Knight and Diesel (left), along with younger brother Silas McQuate and Superman (right), made a family clean sweep of the Grand Champion Market Beef Steer and Reserve Grand Champion Market Beef Steer at the 2021 Douglas County Fair in Castle Rock, CO. On top of those awards, Job picked up the Reserve Sr. Showmanship award and Silas won the Jr. Showmanship Champion buckle. As if that wasn’t enough, the Larkspur, CO brothers both set auction records for the winning bids on their Maine Angus cross steers in Douglas County Fair’s 2021 Junior Livestock Sale.
Happy Flag Day fellow Americans!
