Grand Champion Open was won by John Carter, shown with his father Bryan Hutson.

   The Matagorda County Cattlemen’s Association works with the Matagorda County Fair Board to put on the Commercial Heifer Show.  
   “This project, in my opinion, is one of the best programs we have in the county,” said George Harrison, president of the Cattlemen’s Association.  
   “The participants not only need to bring three quality beef heifers to the show, but they have to prepare a record book that details their cost and projected revenue of the project, which teaches these children valuable life skills,” Harrison explained.  
   In addition, the participants also go through interviews, which a panel of three judges ask questions about this project.
