Hunter Maass chosen to showcase his steer at charity steer show


The 38th annual Iowa Governor’s Charity Steer Show kicked off with a press conference July 22 at the Ronald McDonald House in Sioux City. In the last 37 years, nearly $3.8 million has been raised for the Ronald McDonald Houses across Iowa. To date, this is the only event like this in the entire United States, which makes this event even more unique; it is coordinated by the Iowa Beef Industry Council and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and all proceeds benefit the three Ronald McDonald Houses in Iowa. This year, Hunter Maass was chosen to showcase his steer at the charity steer show; he is the son of Barry and Susie Maass of Ida Grove and is a 2020 OABCIG graduate. Hunter will show “McFlurry” on Aug. 15 at the Governor’s Charity Steer Show, along with celebrity Jaret Lansford, meteorologist from KTIV-TV in Sioux City.
