"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".

PS 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.
