Thomasville -- It was a morning full of primping and preparing for the cows participating in this years Thomas County Steer and Heifer Show.
Members of the local FFA and 4-H will be competing for awards in showmanship and weight class.
"Well for showmanship, it's just mainly judged on the person and how good you can present your cow, and then your weight class is just how good your cow looks and just like how much muscle and how much fat," said Chelsea Brown.
After today's show, the steers and heifers will go to market.
