Sunday, September 21st, 2008

We traveled up to Blackfoot Id. the first week of Sept. for the Eastern Idaho State Fair. It is Idaho’s “All Idaho Show” and the states intermountain show. We had a banner day taking home the exhibitor trophy. We left with:

• Grand & Reserve Champion
• Int. Champion
• Jr. and Reserve Champion & JR Best three
• 1st March calf – a Finest heifer
• 1st Dec. calf -a Proof daughter out of a very good Durham. She also was Jr. Champion
• 1st Sr. calf -a red and white Talent daughter out of a 88pt Red Marker
• 2nd Summer yearling – a Stormatic daughter out of a 90pt Roy
• All of these heifers are home grown
• 1st Jr. yearling – a Lou daughter out of a Jolt. She also was Res. Jr. Champion
• 4th Jr. yearling – a Roy daughter out of a very good Leducue
• 1st Sr. two – A 88pt Advent daughter out of 93pt Res. All Canadian milking yearling Rubens. She was also Int. Champ and Res.
• Grand. Look for her on the colored shavings in Oct. She is maternal sister to Dyks Kite Linda. Grand at Harrisburg and Mass. show and Res. grand New York Spring nationals. She is a 4 yr old owned by Whittier Farms. She will also be at Madison.
• 3rd Sr two – A 87pt Morty daughter
• 1st 5yr old Flora’s back to back Sr and Grand trophy at this show. She was just recently scored 94pts and will be going to Madison with high hopes for a medal.
• We also took a Jr. two Garrison who won her class. Owned by Eskdale Dairy and a Aged cow who won her class and was Res. Sr. Champ. owned by Tammy Gass of Colorado.

I am leaving for Madison in a couple days with my two cows. They will be in Sherona Hills string. I am helping Mike Deaver’s at his Primetime V Sale. Hope to see you there.
