Last Show of the Season

Just home from 11 hour trip to Victoriaville, Quebec and Expo Beef where we exhibited in the Angus Gold Show . Around 100 entries  were judged by Kirk Stierweld from Oklahoma.  Our bull calf sired by SAV Pioneer was second in his split of bull calves  and our SAV Potential heifer calf was also 2nd in her split.  It was a great display of Angus cattle from Eastern Canada and congratulations to everyone.  It was a great weekend to visit with everyone who attended.
Congratulations to other Maritime exhibitors who also showed in Hereford, Salers, Angus & Simmental class.

Glad to hear that the Siddall Family exhibited the Champion Commercial Animal at the Fall Fair in Halifax also this past weekend.  She was purchased from us recently and we wish them much success with her. Also thanks  to Clarence Estabrooks, New Brunswick  for purchasing 3 bred commercial heifers recently.
