We just returned from a most successful trip to the Canadian National Hereford Show at Farmfair International, Edmonton, Alta.
Both Jamie’s yearling heifer and her bull calf won their classes in the Junior Futurity then her heifer was named Grand Champion of the British Breed Show.
Next we entered our three calves in a futurity where they had been entered before they were born and further money was paid over the year leading up to the event. Many cattle are nominated initially but don’t pay all their fees so the money collects and is paid out to class winners and champions. Our heifer was named Reserve Grand Champion Heifer and won $1150.00 !
In the open show our cow/calf pair won the only senior cow/calf class, our two heifer calves were in separate classes, one finished third in class while the other won her class. Jamie’s bull calf placed 7th in his class as did her yearling heifer.
It was a thrill to find out that our cattle were competitive at the top!
