Staudt said she has already thought about her future plans after high school graduation.
Another Rockford student, junior Megan Staudt, was named Beef Senior Showman champion. Staudt talked about what it takes to become a showman champion.
Staudt said showing her cow on Friday was a little more tricky, as the cattle were feisty due to the heat.
