The Dexter Show at the National Western Stock Show took place on January 11th on the first official day of the Stock Show. The show was well attended, and the Dexters, in their second year at the NWSS, gathered a lot of attention. On both Saturday and Sunday, in the hospitality area, Dexter sliders were sampled out to hundreds! Every comment on the beef was positive in nature with many folks coming back for seconds or business cards. What a great way to introduce our Dexter beef.
