Dale and I made a conscious decision a few years ago that, if we were going to continue breeding Stud cattle, we would live and work by our motto: Great Cattle, Great People and Good Times. As anyone that breeds cattle and holds cattle sales will know, it isn’t always easy. And it doesn’t always flow. But it certainly felt like it was a special day on Saturday. We thank you all for being a part of it.
