175 juniors from across Canada attended the national junior Hereford show — Bonanza 2019 — in Weyburn, Sask., from July 31 to August 3. Two hundred and seventy-five head were entered in the open show and were judged by Clinton Morasch. Grand Champion Female went to Emma Lees with GLENLEES 27C REVA 32F and the Grand Champion Bull to Grace Sanburg with GH 377X ECLIPSE 27E (see photos below).
Over 150 people attended a very successful North West Saskatchewan Hereford Tour on August 8 and 9. Day one kicked off at Carlrams Ranching at Cut Knife, with additional cattle on display from CR Bar Ranching, Flicek Hereford Ranch, Garrett Ranching, Log Valley Ranch and Riverbridge Ranch. The afternoon stop was hosted by Lock Farms at Macklin. They were joined by Ace Herefords, Ayrey Hereford Farm and Manchester Herefords.
Day two started with two Maidstone breeders. Standard Hill Livestock had their cattle on display first thing in the morning and Big Gully Farm hosted a display that included The Cliffs Farm and Top 50 Livestock. The tour group then headed up to Livelong for the afternoon to visit Bannerlane Herefords. Bannerlane also hosted a display from EZ Livestock.
It was back to Maidstone for the final leg of the tour and a stop at Misty Valley Farms. Guest consignors included L-O Horned Herefords and the Flying T Ranch with a great group of Baldie heifers.
