Money Steer Report: Round 8
This will be the third run on the second pen of Hill Rodeo Cattle’s NFR steers for 2022.
This is the smallest pen, and they weigh around 480 pounds each. The slower ones were pulled off this set, so team ropers should be in the barrier looking to get them caught before they run out of arena. Bobby Joe Hill breaks down the prospects for the round and picks out the money steer.
