Checking in from Tennessee! Yea it's hot.. yah its humid, but I hear home is too. Lol . Kids are having fun. Making new friends and playing, along with competing in about everything going on. Judging and skill a thon yesterday, fitting contest and quiz bowl this afternoon! Wont know results until Friday night on most things. Cattle are taking the trip pretty good and enjoying the hospitality. Both kids made showmanship finals this morning. Proud of both of them for fighting the heat and proving tough. Cody was out there sticking with 17 kids in the final of intermmediate drive for a top 10 spot but didn't make the cut. He faded in the end. Kaycee grabbed herself 7th overall in the 8 to 10 year old group! Probably the only 8 year old out there!! Now for a relaxing afternoon and possibly some exploring in the area before show day tomorrow.
Fun Memorial Day weekend as usual starting off with the Kansas Jr Hereford show, and finishing it up with Kaycees barrel race in Meriden today. Great family weekend in the books. I didnt get many pictures of the kids showing. But was very proud of them for as little showing and working with the calves we had gotten done this spring. Thanks again for our Kansas Hereford Family for putting on an outstanding show!
Congratulations to our own Cody Brown with Lot 4 from last falls Pride in the Pasture online sale. Slapped Reserve Champion Bred and Owned at the Nebraska Jr Hereford show. She has also been Champion hereford and 3rd overall at several 2019 Spring shows this year already.
This heifer was looked over in our online sale so Cody kept her and shes lead him to purple! She is a Diana x Miles McKee x 240. Look for more just like her the 1st Wednesday in November! New exciting mating's are looking good!
Finally got the kids and calves out to a spring show! Beautiful day in Onaga for it! It was typical 1st show for all but Josie Cody's balancer heifer. But the kids did well! For as little as we have been able to work with them. Even Kaycee and Marshall her steer grabbed a little purple with Reserve Hereford Steer on there 1st outing!
Mark your calendars! Give us a shout for a flyer in October with our show heifers and steer prospects.
