Showmanship is an area over which you have the most control when exhibiting your beef cattle. In showmanship, you are judged on your ability to control and present an animal to bring out its best characteristics. Advanced planning and hard work are important keys to becoming a good exhibitor.

Showing beef cattle generates enthusiasm and competition in the showring and teaches valuable life skills, which include responsibility, making decisions, learning to win graciously, and instilling character. A good showman has a sense for effectively presenting an animal in competition.
