Fresh Corrientes Ready for 47th BFI

Some handy high-numbered snowbirds spent part of February breaking in steers for the 47th Bob Feist Invitational on March 30. With a cash purse of more than $650,000 and 125 teams accepted this year in Guthrie, Oklahoma, the BFI will again demand strong, even cattle.
