Lunchbox, a European Cross steer from Hereford, wins grand champion at Fort Worth Stock Show

Lunchbox1A seven-month-old black European Cross steer appropriately named Lunchbox won grand champion at the Fort Worth Stock Show today.

Stock Martin, the 12-year-old boy from Hereford who showed Lunchbox, is no stranger to the winner’s circle, having shown reserve grand champion steer at the Stock Show last year and grand champion steer at the State Fair of Texas in the fall.

“It’s so exciting I can’t explain it,” the boy said, as he answered questions from the news media after his big win, exchanging high fives and big smiles with family members and a tearful hug with his mother, Sherri Martin. “We knew we had a good one when he was born.”

Lunchbox2Lunchbox will be sold in the Stock Show’s annual show-ending Junior Sale of Champions Saturday morning. If history is any guide, Lunchbox will bring more than $200,000 that will be funnelled into Stock’s college savings and buying more cattle.
