Tanner Kyler, the Pawhuska Future Farmers of America Chapter Sentinel, won his class and represented the chapter well at the 2017 American Royal livestock show.


The American Royal began its existence in 1899 as the National Hereford Show. Since that time, the American Royal Livestock Show has grown to become one of the largest livestock shows in the nation.


The American Royal has developed a reputation as one of the most prestigious and toughest competitions and draws an audience of owners, breeders, future business leaders, agriculture leaders, and animal enthusiasts from across the country.


The American Royal is a national show that strives to impact the future of agriculture by providing educational experiences and scholarships.


While participating in the American Royal, Kyler had many opportunities to compete against other exhibitors from a multitude of states and to show others the results of his cow-calf production. The steer that Tanner exhibited at this show was produced from a heifer in his own beef production enterprise. This makes his success even more impressive.
