that was being shown at Kansas City for the 20-Grand
Sale. He was Reserve Champion Sale Bull.
"I had Bud, who was living in St. Joseph, MO, hire a
Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleader to lead this bull through
the sale ring. When the gal showed up, she was
about 15 and homely as a clock. Bud gave her $30
and sent her on her way".
Troubadour was the Grand Champion steer at the 1956
Chicago International. He was bred at Penn State and was
sired by Calrossie Troubadour, who was a herd sire at
Cyrus Eaton's Acadia Farms.
Cyrus Eaton was the owner and Chairman of the Board of
the Cheasapeake and Ohio Railroad.
After this win, he commissioned a luxury parlor car on
the C&O railroad to be named the PS Troubadour, and he
toured this steer throughout almost all parts of the USA
and Canada for almost two years.
This steer was displayed at major events from the East
coast to the West coast, was introduced to numerous
movie stars and leading politicians .... and was one of
the first animals to be displayed on numerous Television
shows in the early years of TV.
This steer has his own
attendants that traveled with him and cared for him year
round. No animal in history was ever introduced to as
many world leaders as this steer was.
