Cramer Schneider and sister, Ally Jo of Georgetown work together to present Cramers’ heifer Apple at the 2016 North American International Livestock Exposition. The heifer was selected Division II Bred and Owned Champion in the Junior Heifer Simmental show.

Cramer was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma when he was six months old. Two and a half years later, he lost his sight. Teamwork is key in the show ring for Cramer, the bond Apple and him share is one of a kind. The Schneider family has been attending the North American International Livestock Exposition at the Kentucky Exposition Center for nine years.
