5 Ways to Be a Winner…In Life and In the Show Ring

By Sally Long There’s a famous quote that says…”Sit with the winners, the conversation is different…” We love this quote and recently I have done some reflecting on what my conversations with true winners have looked like: 1.     Winners don’t make excuses. So things didn’t go your way and you had a bad show. It is so easy to find blame in the judge, the setup, the situation and anything else that could possibly help explain the disappointment.  However, all of those things are out of your control as a competitor. Winners let go of the things they cannot control …

What do summer junior shows mean to you?

Another summer show season is quickly approaching the end. As August arrives, it brings county and state fairs and we officially say goodbye to national junior summer shows. Team ShowBloom enjoyed a summer filled with travel, making memories and, of course, chasing those banners! As we at ShowBloom reflect back to our own junior show careers (we aren’t sharing how long it’s been since those years!) we know that those summer national shows were some of the most memorable shows we attended. There’s just nothing like loading up with your family and making treks across the country to see your …

Why we show

Dedication (noun)— the quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose.   Growing up in a family that shows livestock is a blessing not enough of this world has the privilege to understand. When asked what you’re doing over summer vacation, spring break, Christmas break, and pretty much every other break you ever had—your non-livestock friends might not have understood why your answer was always “going to Junior Nationals/WPX/OYE/Houston.” However, you, and your family, know there is no better place to spend your family time.   Livestock shows are the greatest teachers, best ways to spend a …

Showbloom Champion Spotlight: Grimmel Girls Show Cattle

Getting to see customers succeed is our favorite part of what we do at Showbloom. Recently we sat down with Showbloom customer Melissa Grimmel from Jarettsville Maryland, who recently won Grand Champion Polled Hereford Heifer at the National Western Stock Show, to ask some questions about her #stockshowlife and recent win. Why do you show? Cattle are my life – showing is my life. It is the reason why I am attending Kansas State and my future career will involve the cattle industry.

Continuing a Winning Tradition

Since 1983 Showbloom has been the supplement showmen can count on to help meet the nutritional needs of all their species of livestock. As we ring in 2016, Showbloom is proud to continue the tradition of helping customers win banners. Just as great wins take more than hard work, an excellent feed supplement requires the best possible team of people to make, sell, and feed it to stock. We know that Showbloom wouldn’t be able to reach your livestock’s feed pan without the help of the best dealers, and of course customers, around. The Showbloom team wants to celebrate all …
