'Twas but days before Christmas and at the Fairgrounds

There were cattle a’stirring, from states all around.

They were here for a show, a jackpot with prizes

There were smiles from the winners, who came in all sizes.


The Box Elder County Fairgrounds was the site of the 8th annual Christmas Classic Jackpot Show for steers, market heifers and breeding heifers on Saturday, December 11. This show is one of the premier cattle shows in this part of the country.

Heifers and steers were on display and ready for judging at this year's Christmas Classic, hosted by the Beins family of Deweyville.

This year the Winter exhibition was hosted by the Chris Beins family of Deweyville. Chris said attendance has grown with each show and this year more than 240 head of cattle were entered. Those exhibiting the livestock came from all over the West, including Montana, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Nevada, and of course, right here in Utah. Judging was done by Chuck Lemenager of Fairbury, Illinois.


“We gave out over $10,000 in cash and prizes to kids from all over,” Chris said of the successful event, due in part, he added, to generous sponsors like Valley Wide Co-op, DL Evans Bank, Jennifer Stewart American Family Insurance, Earl Trucking, Valley Implement, Wooden Shoe Farms and Great Basin Graphics.
