For young people all over the southeast, months of cattle rearing culminates in the Georgia Junior Beef Futurity.
Saturday is the third and last day of the 4H competition at the fairgrounds in Perry.
Judges combed the exhibits looking for the best and most promising specimens of cattle.
4H and Future Farmers of America members from Georgia, Alabama, and Florida showed off 387 head of cattle in all.
During the competition Saturday, the cows were judged on conformation, which is the skeletal and muscular structure of the animals.
Exhibitors say the competition was stiff.
"It's real hard, all these cows from Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, they from all around here. Some of these older ones are bigger and you can't get around them," says Branson Beasley.
"The competition, it was hard because my cow so little and like the other cows are taller and bigger than mine," says Mekayla McIver of Ray, Georgia.
Since Thursday, judges gave awards for good showmanship, the most impressive steers and Saturday they picked the 5 best heifers.
