When a judge is about to name a grand champion, he always likes to add suspense. Typically, the judge will say a little about each cow and give a little reasoning behind his decision. He then announces that he will go out and pick the champion. He will wander around to make everyone a little more nervous, and then he will slap the winning animal on the butt.
At the 2015 Ohio Beef Expo last week, we all watched with knots in our stomachs as.....
Yes, our very own 4 WILEY MOUNTAIN MITCHELL won Grand Champion Bull!
I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are. I am so glad that Nick took this video for us. I have watched it a hundred times and it still doesn't feel real.
We also won Reserve Grand Champion Female with Annabelle (JW'S FANTASIA).
We want to especially thank Anthony, who showed Mitchell for us, Nick and Aaron and his crew who helped us fit and get everyone ready for the show. This was a group effort and we couldn't have done it without all of them.
I will be back later to fill you in on more details of the Beef Expo.
We had a great time and are still pinching ourselves!
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
