Earlier this week we wrapped up one of our favorite times of the year with exhibiting at the Indiana and Kentucky State Fairs.

The cows may be red, but the banners ended up being purple as Ms Shanias Snowstorm Ex 91 won the 4 Year Old class and went on to be Sr. & Grand Champion R&W at the Indiana State Fair. Her barn mate, Hilltop-RJ Jordy Sugar Ex 91 won the Sr 3 Yr Old class, was Int. and Reserve Grand Champion R&W.

Then, one week later at the Kentucky State Fair they traded spots as Sugar was 1st Sr 3 Yr and Grand Champion R&W, while Snowstorm was 1st 4 Yr Old and Reserve Grand Champion R&W.

Snowstorm (Avalanche x Shania EX 95) and Sugar (Jordy x EX 91 Absolute x Shania EX 95) are continuing to carry on Shania’s legacy for us and our partners. Snowstorm and Sugar are owned with Bob Osborn and R, K, & A Tusing.

Check out our most recent ad with a few of our spring sale consignment highlights. We’re not doing a tag sale this year but we’ve been busy getting animals ready for sales, selling a few right off the farm, and prepping for spring expo in Ohio. We’ve got plenty of great calves available at the farm and hope to see you at Spring show in Columbus.

Congrats to Joey Opsal and Hayleigh Beri on Salsa. Love seeing animals that came through the farm doing well for others and especially Shania daughters. She’s quickly becoming a foundation cow for us both black and red.

It’s been a busy couple weeks on the farm but finally taking the time for some WDE updates.

First up is Oneeda Warrior Lana. Bred by and owned with Roger Hibschman and family. Lana was 14th in a deep class of milking yearlings and is on service for next year. Thanks to Kristin Natzke for hoping in the drivers seat for her. For 30 days out of the of the free stall pen we’re thrilled how she’s adapted so far and are excited for her future.

Second is LeAnn Acres Lolalala Caroline. An incredible heifer with a story I like just as much. It’s been probably a decade since we’ve owned a jersey but this girl was undeniable from day one. I first saw her at our county show for owner Sheldon Thomas/LeAnn Acres and fell in love. I hinted at buying her but went home that day and couldn’t get her out of my head. 12 days later at our state fair walking around at 5am on show day I spotted a heifer in Susan and Austin Thomas’ string that grabbed me. Caroline aka Shelly was tied in with them and looked even better than county show. Susan, who has been doing some milking at our place for the better part of a year and we couldn’t be happier with her, had her in her and Austin’s string. She explained to me she’d be caring for her for the last 12 days and was starting to love the heifer. I told her and Austin to get her bought and we’d partner on her. 10 minutes later while filling heifers at our string Austin came over and said it was a done deal and thus began the story. She’s been in the daily care of Susan and I can’t think of anyone better to be honest. She’s done and incredible job with an incredible heifer.

Caroline is a Lolalala out of a EX92 Impression EX92 Tradition EX93 Jade EX91 First Prize. She was 3rd fall calf from class that brought Jr Champion as well as Reserve. We’re thrilled with this heifer and her future.

Thanks again to our partners and special thanks to Tim and Barb at Crestbrooke for letting us tie a couple in with them. Top notch all the way.

After a year off we were able to make the back to back state fair run of IN and KY state fairs.

First thanks to all who helped along the way and the crew from both shows. Couldn’t have done it without you and couldn’t ask for a better crew to get cows out with. Most importantly Todd. Does all the work and gets next to none of the recognition. Thank you.

Classification update!

Never fails but it seems like every 7 months comes about every 2. And as always seems like there’s multiple animals we wish were fresh a tad longer or weren’t quite as stale but were thankful classifiers can see through some of that.

Most of these cows have daughters or sisters selling in the Spring Fling Tag Sale

This year was different for everyone obviously. Normally we’d go straight from IN state fair to one of our favorite shows of the year the KY state fair. This year IN adjusted their schedule which made going to both more difficult, then we got out letter to classify which put the final nail in the coffin for us going to KY. Not that we didn’t miss seeing our southern friends but we’re pretty happy we ended up scoring last Friday.

A few of the results.
We scored 7 2yr olds

VG86 - Doorman x Destry EX94 owned with Osborn

A little delayed on getting State Fair results posted. Normally we'd be enjoying the air conditioning in KY with our fellow exhibitors but we got scheduled to classify instead. Anyways here's the results of IN State Fair this year. We'll get to classification highlights in a couple days.

Most importantly thanks to an awesome crew who does as nice of a job getting 20ish head out on the money and are even better people to be around. Tyler Endres, Doug Boop, Alexa Albrecht, Rob & Lindsay LaFollette, Brian Engleking, Caitlin Cox & Cathy Logan, Craig & Shaina Shaw, and last but not least Dad, he's the only way this thing ever stays rolling.
