Bottlenecked near the exit of the North Hall, dozens of heads snapped around to see the girl demanding a clear path through the packed Pennsylvania Farm Show. Locking eyes with Chile, Lindsay's 1,255-pound short horn steer, every person ahead of the young girl stepped aside. "Look at the size of it," one man said in awe as the 5-foot-tall, 5-foot-wide steer sauntered through the exit. Flashing a smile at Chile, Lindsay tugged on the rope and led her steer to the show arena.

"A lot of people think it's about the best animal, but it's also about communication and talking about what's going on around the show.
