Iowa State Fair

The 2012 Iowa State Fair has come and gone, and once again it was a great one.  This year we added a new dynamic to our show string in the Open Hereford show.  Katie's parents, who are new to the Hereford family, brought a Purple Kingsley heifer to the show.  She is the first Hereford heifer bred and raised by Dennis and Roxanne.  To top it off, our new brother-in-law Matt showed her, which was also a first. 
Our show day started with a flurry as we had a heifer in each of the first three classes.  Matt started us off with a 4th place finish.  Our March heifer sired by About Time was just good enough to win a very tough class.  Next up was our Shock & Awe daughter that didn't fare quite as well.  Our yearling bred heifer sired by About Time also won her class, but was left standing in the division selection.  Then it was on to the bulls, which were in the same class.  Our Purple Milsap son stood second, and our About Time son was third. 
Our biggest win was when Baja Cattle was selected as Champion Hereford Herdsman, which was quite an honor.  We did a lot to keep our stalls clean, neat, and inviting. It was a great feeling to be selected for that award. 
Another fun part of our fair was when Brock, our cousin's son, was spotted with Dennis & Roxanne's heifer by the Iowa State Fair advertising campaign, so he got to film a commercial for next years fair.


Here is Brock in front of the camera and microphone.  His line was, "Happiness is a blue ribbon", which he had to say without his front two teeth, which he had just lost in the past couple weeks.


This is our broom man, Trey, with the Champion Hereford Herdsman trophy.  He's the one who kept our tack area and aisle clean.

It's almost State Fair time!

The Iowa State Fair is just 9 days away! This year we are taking 7 head, our biggest string yet in the Hereford show. The feature in our string will be an About Time female we sold privately last fall that could get a look. We'll also have three heifer and two bull calves that are each impressive in our mind. We will also be showing a hereford steer in the feeder calf show. He will be selling in our Tremendous 12 Sale this fall, as well as one of our heifer calves. Look us up while you're there, we'd love to show you our string & talk cattle.

Tremendous 12 Sale

It's almost July, which means ad deadlines are here for the mega August issues.  We were able to picture a handful of this years consignments in time for our ad.  We'll be posting some of these pictures with some info on each calf over the next few weeks, so keep coming back!

To hold you over, here is our current ad that can be seen in the June/July issue of the Show Circuit.

Future Donor

This young cow from Purple Reign is set to be a cornerstone in our program. In just her first calf, she hammered out a tremendous herd bull prospect by About Time, which will be in our state fair string. Anticipation is high for her 2013 calf as I just bred her to Purple Currency. If that hits the way I think it will she's going straight to the donor pen!

Custom Ear Tags

We ordered custom ear tags for our growing cow herd. Cook Show Cattle out of Ohio can put pretty much whatever you want on an ear tag. We love ours! They even gave us a custom key chain

Page 118 in The Show Circuit

Our latest ad is out in the June/July issue of The Show Circuit.  Be sure to look us up on page 118.  This years set of calves is solid from top to bottom.  We have two full sibs (Salty Dog x Meyer) to the many time champion steer shown by Caleb Streitmatter, as well as several breed steers and heifers.  Breeds represented: Angus, Charolais, Chianina, Hereford, Maine, Simmental

Mother's Day

I'm a day late posting this, but I did call my mom yesterday and wish her a very happy Mother's Day.  In the typical fashion of my mother, she was of course working, which was not a surprise.  There is not a harder working woman out there!  Not only does she put in her 40 plus hours a week at Campbell Supply (which she's been doing for nearly 20 years) but she also has her two part-time/seasonal jobs she does week in and week out which she doesn't have to do, not to mention everything she does at home for my dad. 

To the greatest Mom in the world! 
Happy Mother's Day
Love you!

Reserve Champion

Baja Miley, the heifer we sold at the Iowa Beef Expo was selected as Reserve Champion Polled Female at the IJBBA Purple Ribbon Run Day 1. Congratulations Libby Anderlik!

Full Sister

This is the heifer we sold in the Select Hereford Sale at the 2011 Iowa Beef Expo.  She was originally purchased to be the foundation for the Schanbacher Family's Hereford herd as they hadn't planned on showing her.  As time went by they decided to try their luck in the show ring.  That was a good decision as she was Champion Hereford Female in the 2011 Iowa State Fair FFA show as well as Champion Hereford both days at the IJBBA Final Drive show.  The best part is she's bred to About Time and will calve this spring!  Congratulations!

Starting em Young

Our friends' little one likes to take his dad's Baja Cattle hat off his head and put it on his own. Pretty smart little 1-year-old if you ask me!
