- Steve`s Thoughts -

January 23, 2017

            We are near being very busy with calving (six on the ground so far) and preparations for the 2017 edition of the Standard Hill Connection Sale (Feb 24th, 2017). Winter started off with a cold chill this year but we have had a few nice weeks lately and if the forecast holds true it should stay mild for a while. Always nice to have a full set of ears on the calves!


            We are excited this year for a new set of calves. The Hereford crop will consist of Dominators, Harlans, Cannons, You Tubes, Untappeds, Maxs, and Quigleys. Quantum, Bando, Bengal, Colonist, and Trade Secret will sire the 2017 Angus progeny. We bred all naturally in 2016 to try to tighten up calving and save on time and labour. Of course plans for the 2017 breeding season are well on the way. We had purchased two Hereford yearling bulls as of last fall. CHSF Dealer 13D from Ross Bricker is off their Brian herdsire that impressed me very much when I visited at CJHA Bonanza time. TCF Stacked 609D caught my eye at Lloydminster Stockade Round-Up and I was happy to acquire him before Agribition where the Reids showed him expertly to a 1st place in his class (picture on our news page and Facebook). We will be sourcing at least one Angus bull yet this spring.
            The 2017 Edition of the Standard Hill Connection Sale is almost exactly one month away! The catalogue is now online and videos can be found by following the links on our homepage. Be sure to read my sale welcome as there are many changes to the sale this year.
            The Saskatchewan Hereford Association is in the process of launching a mentorship program to help younger agriculture enthusiast with experienced producers. The committee led by Lance Leachman hopes to foster growth of character and knowledge of the mentees by placing them with mentors with common interests. This program will hopefully be fully implemented by next January with the first round of applications to be in after Agribition 2017. Watch Hereford news links for more information.
            Many Angus producers are awaiting the word from the CAA board of directors on the progression of the proposed ACE (Angus Cow Enrollment) program. The initial model of the program places a large financial burden on every Angus cow you wish to have the ability to register calves from at the beginning of the year with no guarantee to get this value. The goals of the program do have merits however, and we will see if the board can make the program work. I expect much discussion at the upcoming meetings and encourage you to find out all the facts if you have a vested interest in registered Angus cattle.

That’s all I’ve got on my mind for now…that would interest you. Hahaha. I look forward to conversing with you all down the road.
