In between these equine events, champions of other kinds had their turn in the limelight. At every performance some of the winning animals from the livestock exposition were paraded to the music of the Stock Yard Band. This band, composed of bagpipes and drums, its members nicely attired in kilts of Buchanan plaid, led the march of Santa Gertrudis cattle, prize-winning herds of other breeds and a $16,945 Aberdeen-Angus steer named Julius. The champion wether, an imposing sheep of 102 pounds, was towed around the ring in a special cage behind a jeep; but the grand-prize winner in the porcine class, a 204-pound barrow which was sold at a record price of $19.25 a pound, was not displayed. There was also an exhibition of sheep herding, and a demonstration of three teams of six Clydesdales, recalling the early days of the 56-year-old show when the draft horse played a major part in the horse shows held in conjunction with the Live Stock Exposition, the largest in the United States and perhaps in the world.
