The purpose of this class is to let our hair down, and enjoy yourselves! Grab a calf, pick out a costume (for your and your calf), and come down to the show arena to present your costumes to a "local celebrity" judge. Grand and Reserve winners will be awarded. All you have to do to participate in this class is fill out the donation form and raise a minimum of $50. This donation will be used for Born & Raised prizes, Beef Obstacle prices, etc.!
