Illinois Junior Hereford Assoc. Preview Show

Last weekend we attended the Illinois Junior Hereford Association Preview Show in Taylorville. This is a two day show with bred & owned, cow calf, bulls and steers being shown on Saturday and the owned heifers shown on Sunday (Fathers Day). Congratulations to the Polled winners the Collins family, and the horned winners Bauers and Jones (bred by Del Hawk Herefords).

All in all, we had a pretty good weekend. Our fall bull was a class winner (see his picture) and the Harfst heifer Jake bought at the preview show placed 4th (beating a couple of high dollar heifers that had previously beat him in Roseville).

In the produce department, the mums are continuing to grow at a rapid pace. I finished planing the last couple rows of sweet corn yesterday, yes, on June 25th. Hope to have some produce at the farmers market soon.
