Gonna Brag A Bit

The 2011 show cattle season was very good for our family.  We all worked our butts off in some way.  It started at Hoosier Beef Congress in December 2010 and ended in November at North American Livestock Exposition.  Our Little Man has a bond with his heifer like some children with their dogs.  Only his weighs 1400+ and eats over 25lbs of feed a day.  So I wanted to share how proud we are of how well we did as a family.  We look forward to her calving in March and then going to the Donor pen in the spring with her mother.  Have a wonderful Thursday!

A surprise for the Little Man, being on the Show Rite display at Hoosier Beef Congress.

It has been a great year showing, making memories and new friends.  Now that the Little Miss is showing we are even more excited for the year ahead.  Showing cattle is more than winning.  It's responsibility, confidence, bonds, love for cattle and our family being together.

Congrats to Little Man that is a lot of work.
Little Miss is going to be just as caring and awesome at these competitions I am sure. B
