Les and Tammy Barkhurst, parents of Kristi Barkhurst, with, left to right, Brett Miller, Corson Kerbs and Sarah Herold, winners of the 2013 Wyoming State Fair Kristi Barkhurst Memorial Fitting Contest pose with the steer the trio used in the fitting contest. This is the first year a team from Carbon County has won the contest.

It takes a lot of work to make a steer look good for showing. It is something that has taken Brett Miller, of Encampment, Corson Kerbs, of Saratoga, and Sarah Herold, of Little Snake River, years to perfect.

This year the trio was named grand champion in the Kristi Barkhurst Memorial Beef Fitting Contest at state fair in Douglas last month.

Miller said the trio has been competing together for three years. For him, it was an honor to be chosen to be a part of the group.

“The Carbon County Fair does not have a beef fitting show,” Miller said. “If they did, I would compete in it.”
