Bittersweet is one word to describe the emotions of the day. These calves were the last set of calves Grandpa Everett was around to see. He would have been so incredibly proud of how Melissa is carrying the torch caring for these calves. She has poured everything into them, getting them ready for your kiddos to show.

As grandpa is watching the sale with a front row seat in heaven likely with a bowl of homemade ice cream and popcorn, let’s put on a show today at the online auction!

Labor Day for most Americans means a little time to relax and rewind. Not the case for farmers and ranchers. Harvest around the US has started, including .

Labor Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of the millions of men and women who keep America running. 🇺🇸

This year, don’t forget to thank a farmer. 👩🏼‍🌾 👨🏼‍🌾

Approximately 2.6 million Americans work directly on a farm. Nearly 20 million more work in food and other agricultural-related industries.

Farming and ranching are certainly not your average 9 to 5 job. It’s sunup to sundown and sometimes all night long. Farming is a lifetime of commitment to caring for animals or producing a sustainable crop. It’s boots-on-the-ground work that requires equal measures of grit and grace and a little bit of good luck.

Despite the immense challenges that they have been presented with this year, America’s farmers and ranchers have continued to work every day in order to provide America with the most affordable, abundant and safest food supply in the world.

SCO - Everett Tom Show Cattle and Dandee Cattle Co. Steer & Heifer Sale - IN

Welcome to our 2022 Calf Sale.

My Dad, Everett Tom, passed away in February of this year. Dad was a true cattleman in every sense of the word, a man with the utmost integrity who was generous with everything he had. We are working to continue this by giving kids opportunities to show these calves as feeders and then pass this calf on to you ready to show. 6 of our calves went to the county fair this year. We are already expecting that there will be more next year.

They were in the ring for showmanship, the mini 4-H show and the 4-H show. They spent the
week going back and forth to tie outs as well. We had Champion and Reserve Champion Feeder Calf at the Kosciusko County Fair, so these are competitive calves.

The kids have continued to help with these calves so they are ready for you to take home and show the next
weekend. The work has literally been done!

Last year Dan Nelson offered some calves in our sale and we are so fortunate to have Dan’s calves in our sale again this year.

Dan always brings an awesome set of calves. He spends a lot of time in his pasture and in the barn working with his calves, so they are all gentle, broke to tie and most to lead. These are high quality calves that will be very competitive. You can be
confident in what he has to offer here.

Since Dad passed away in Feb. of this year he didn’t make it through calving season but he did make it down to the barn one last time before he passed to see the January calves. He is greatly missed by all of us and that makes these calves extra special to us this year. We will be sad to see them go but looking forward to seeing what they can accomplish with your family.

And for those who have wondered, if we will be keeping the cows, the answer is yes with the goal of being able to say as my Dad did every year, “ this is the best set of calves we have ever raised!”

We appreciate your time, Thanks for looking at our calves this year!

-Melissa

One process with seed corn 🌽 is called “flaming”. We use this implement to to flame.

Basically it pulses a flame 🔥 every few inches which stunts the growth of the male corn allowing for a extended pollination window.

Starving Ukrainians blocked from receiving aide, lack of Ukrainian wheat may cause world food shortage

Many folks have asked about how to best help the during this time. What is happening there is unthinkable.

Farmers there have been effected greatly. Ukraine is the bread basket of the world and now have bread lines.

Using food as a weapon of war is inconceivable.

People are going without food, the World Food Programme is doing everything they can to help but making tough decisions about who they can help…giving to starving people and hungry people going without. It’s devastating.

If you are looking to help, consider the WFP.

This evening 60 Minutes did a story with David Beasley. None better helping in this fight. Watch it here by clicking the link.

Scott Pelley reports from Odesa, where the U.N.'s World Food Programme is desperately trying to reach starving Ukrainians and pleading for the reopening of Ukraine's seaports.
