It might be calving season when...you open up your refrigerator and see a calf bottle on the top shelf.

Yep, there it is. And its presence is a visual representation of how much we, and all farmers, care about their animals. That bottle made its way into our fridge last night at almost midnight after a baby who was born yesterday, and was struggling, was given some extra love and food to make sure he can survive and thrive. That bottle represents the late nights and early mornings checking on cows and babies and making sure we do our very best by each and every one of them. That bottle shows just how much our cows, and farming, are more than just a job, they are truly a way of life.

So we'll continue to push aside the yogurt to make room for that calf bottle, because those babies, the animals they will become, and their mommas matter to us.

For us, cattle shows are as much about the time spent visiting with friends, customers and consumers as they are about the banners.

State Fair of West Virginia did not disappoint...we had a great time visiting with friends, cattle breeders and consumers and ended with a reserve division champion with UHF 6602 ADDIE U09H.

Thank you to our village who helped with kids and cows and everything in between!

We've been passionate about supporting youth since we started, even before we had our own littles. We have been happy to help with this show and look forward to seeing everyone there!

We are excited for a great show in less than a month...but great show's don't happen without great sponsors. We'll be highlighting sponsors as well as sharing important information about the show from now until show time.

Black Locust Livestock LLC is one of our Summit Sponsors (meaning they gave $1000 plus).

Black Locust Livestock is a multifaceted business. They started as a livestock marketing firm, and have expanded into cattle as well. They are passionate about cattle, agriculture, "ag"vocating, and youth. Much of the design work that you see for our show is done by BLL, and we appreciate both their monetary support and their work!

BLL is owned by Michael and Rebecca Webert, and in addition to offering marketing and creative solutions to livestock producers, they also sell purebred Hereford, Simmental and Angus cattle.

Check them out on Facebook, Instagram, and online at www.blacklocustlivestock.com

It's an honor to be a member of an association, and a part of a board, who supports kids, especially kids who are interested in agriculture and livestock.

We are helping to sponsor this show, because we know it is a great opportunity for kids to learn, network, meet other kids who share interests, and have fun (and we are super excited that Will and Ben will be able to participate in a show with Ryan Rash as a judge)!

Interested in helping to sponsor? Let us know, or reach out to 2021 Southeastern Regional Hereford Show directly, we'll get you the info you need (and our gratitude, as well as the gratitude of all the kids that will have a great show because of your support)!

Cattle shows are family affairs, and we know that you have a whole crew of people who support you and would love to see you show, but may not be able, or comfortable, traveling to Virginia to watch in person.

We completely understand. That is why we are so incredibly grateful to the Virginia Hereford Association Board for voting to sponsor Show Barn Flix for the 2021 SER!! They will be covering the show both days, so anyone who cannot attend in person can still watch live!

We want to extend our thanks to the Virginia Hereford Association and all of our sponsors for their support of this event. Without sponsors we would not be able to host a great show for all of our exhibitors!

We will be highlighting our sponsors over the next several weeks, and we encourage everyone to thank them and support them as you can!

Also, if you would like to be a sponsor we'd love to have you! Sponsorship levels are in the comments, and feel free to send us a message and we can send you more details and a sponsorship form!

"We cannot always build a future for our youth, but we can always build our youth for the future." Franklin D. Roosevelt

We believe this 💯, and it is our (maybe slightly biased) opinion that involving youth in agriculture and livestock is one of the best ways that we can build our youth for the future.

The Sifford Family (Steve, Rosemary, Madison, Salem and Sedona) have generously donated this heifer to help raise funds for the 2021 Southeastern Regional Hereford Show that will be hosted by Virginia Hereford Association and the Virginia Junior Hereford Association this June in Harrisonburg, and we were honored to be able to picture this heifer for this event.

Looking for a great heifer to add to your string or program? She sells TOMORROW in the South Carolina Hereford Association's Sale in Williamston, SC. This is a great change to support an opportunity to help build our youth for the future AND buy a great heifer.

If you can't make it tomorrow, reach out to Dale Stith at 918-760-1550, he'd be glad to help you bid!
