Getting ready for 1st summer show

The first summer show of the season is about 3 weeks away with the annual Provincial Exhibition  in Charlottetown, PEI on August 14-16th. The tenative show times are Shorthorn, Angus, Commercial on Friday, August 15 and Hereford, Simmental and Supreme on Saturday, August 16. The Angus show generally has the largest show numbers with usually  60- 70 head exhibited from producers throughout the Maritimes.      We will be exhibiting a few Angus with Julie and Derek this year and  Stephen and Jennie will have Simmental and Sheep entries. Anyone visiting the Maritimes should try to attend this week long exhibition as there is lots to see and do.  Visitors are always welcome to the farm.   Recent guests were  Canadian Angus Association CEO  Rob Smith who brought along President Corrine Gibson and Angus Ambassador Chad Lorenz for a tour. We alway enjoy seeing  Rob and friends for his annual visit and feed of lobster!
They didn't want to cooperate tonight for pictures - they were more interested in eating grass

Meanwhile, Bannockburn Maples Kodiak 29z , our herd sire loves getting his picture taken.
