2020 NFR Round 3 Steer Report: Fan-Favorite Pen
Round 3 will see the softest pen of the Hill Rodeo Cattle steers.

This set will be pretty comparable to Round 2, if not just a touch softer. Look for a lot of 4-second runs. Every team has a chance, and there shouldn’t be one team with the advantage, according to Billy Bob Brown, who’s managing the steers this week for the team roping contestants.  

Erich Rogers and Paden Bray: 846

Great chance. Right down the middle, good speed. Erich will set him up for Paden to heel fast on the end of it. 

Chad Masters and Wesley Thorp: 851

They ran this steer in the practice. He was sharp and right down the middle, and he handled great.

Charly Crawford and Logan Medlin: 842

This is a great steer with big horns. He looks like a Watusi. 

Levi Simpson and Shay Carroll: 845

He was fighting it leaving the chute when they called for him in the run-through, but he should be a good steer. He handles good and Shay will get him fast tonight. 

Clay Tryan and Jake Long: 766

He stepped right but was a good steer. 

Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins II: 843

He stepped right but had great speed. That should fit their run. 

Dustin Egusquiza and Travis Graves: 741

They ran that steer in practice. He’s hard to count against. He might fade right a little, but with the lights on, he won’t. 

Colby Lovell and Paul Eaves: 857

He’s similar to their Round 2 steer. Right down the middle with big horns and good speed.

Cody Snow and Junior Noguiera: 537

Good steer, right down the middle. 

Clay Smith and Jade Corkill: 850

He faded a little right, but had good speed. He’s a great chance for them. 

Luke Brown and Joseph Harrison: 798

This is a good steer. He stepped right after the rope hit his horns, but Joseph probably won’t let him go right. 

Brenten Hall and Chase Tryan: 787

This is another great steer, right down the middle. 

Kolton Schmidt and Hunter Koch: 847

This is a good steer and right down the middle. Kolton should rebound tonight. 

Jeff Flenniken and Tyler Worley: 849

Great, straight steer. 

Nelson Wyatt and Levi Lord: 852

This is another good one. This is just like their steer in Round 2, and might step left with great speed.
