Friday Flashback - May 27, 2011

Good luck to everyone on their upcoming
 4H Achievement Day !

Provincial 4H Heifer Show - Bashaw - about 1992

Somewhere hidden in the "vault" I have some pics' from our local 4H Achievement Day - but this is the best I could come up with today - I have no idea why I am out there all by myself - I believe it may have been a division class - and I believe we may have even come home with a banner ! Either way - I have great memories from our summer 4H shows -

Monday is the local 4H Achievement Day in Pincher Creek - and yours truly (me) - is going to evaluate the young showmen and women that day.  I am looking forward to it - and hope to see some of you come out and support our local young beef producers !!!!

Friday Flashback

Tom and Mic Jenkins with their Hereford Steers - I am guessing this picture was taken in the mid to late 1950's ??? - everyone is all dressed up for this picture - including the steers !

Friday Flashback

Dad and I - Pincher Creek Fair - about 1984 ???

You will have to forgive the "fuzziness" of this picture - it is one of the very few I have of Dad and I showing cattle together.  I have learned so much from him over the years -- and have such great memories of going to shows/sales with him.  Take note of the old Bar 15 Simmetals truck in the back - forming the "show ring" for us !

Have a GREAT weekend !

New Photo Gallery

Hi Everyone -

Check out our new photo gallery at . The link on our website will also change soon - and will take you to our new page.   This type of gallery let's me upload and share new pictures right from my computer - which should keep it more interesting and more current.

And ... here are some random pic's of our 2011 Calves, these are end of March/April babies

Dam of our 2011 Calgary Bull Sale Champ.  with a "Jack" (HH Advance 8248U) heifer calf (excuse the nose cleaning !)

Reserve Champoin Female Farmfair 2010 - with a sharp looking heifer calf (only a couple hours old) and yes .. that is a spot on it's head ... not manure !

You'll see more of this pair - Reserve Junior Female Farmfair 2010 - with her first calf, another "Jack" heifer calf - this is an awesome pair !

A "Jack" Heifer calf - out of the mother of the Reserve Junior Heifer pictured above

and ..... here is the calf on that pair pictured above ... she is one of our best in my opinion - with a super sweet attitude !
