Iowa Governor’s Charity Steer Show A Success

It was another successful Governor’s Charity Steer Show at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday.  The show started in 1983 with the Iowa Beef Industry Council and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association joining forces with Governor Terry Branstad to raise money for the Ronald McDonald Houses of Iowa.

The grand champion steer was shown by Craig Hill, President of the Iowa Farm Bureau and owned by Shawnee Tate of Renwick.

25 celebrities participated in this year’s event and Governor Branstad says it was another great show.

Ronald McDonald Houses are located in Des Moines, Iowa City and Sioux City. These facilities house the family members of seriously ill children being treated in area hospitals. The show has raised more than $2 million in its 31 year run.
