     Camryn Castrogovannie, daughter of Trish and Blaine Castrogovannie and a fourth grade student at Ascension Catholic Primary School, has exhibited the Grand Champion Steer at the 2016 LSU Ag Center Livestock Show.

     Castrogovannie and her 1,323 pound steer, Spike, were evaluated against competitors from all over Louisiana, by Dale Pitchford of Porum, Okla.

     Castrogovannie and Spike are no strangers to winning banners – in October they captured Reserve Grand Champion Prospect Steer honors at the State Fair of Louisiana in Shreveport. Other titles include Grand Champion Market Steer of the Ascension Parish Livestock Show and Grand Champion Market Steer of the South Central District Livestock Show.

     This is the second year in a row that Castrogovannie has exhibited a championship steer at the state livestock show, having held the Reserve Grand Champion title in 2015.
