RSK Farms WHC and MHA Field Day

What a time to be a Hereford breeder! With all of the meetings, tours and shows complete and still fresh in our minds, I really look forward to what is next to come. I would like to applaud the hard work and time that went into the event from everyone that was involved. We certainly had a great time and enjoyed meeting new and old friends along the way. Congratulations to the CHA for a wonderful event!
At RSK Farms, our planning for the WHC and MHA Field Day started about 2 years ago at the Manitoba Annual Meetings, by volunteering to host the 2012 MB Field Day. Hosting a post tour stop and promoting MB Herefords was a great opportunity for everyone involved.

Excluding all the planning that was involved our WHC trip started on July 10th at about 10:30PM. We drove through the night and made it to Olds were we rested the cattle and ourselves until Sunday morning when the cattle went into the Olds Ag Society. Thank You to Cole and Jill and all the Harvie Ranching crew for the hospitality. The show in Olds was top shelf and the facilities were amazing. The amount of people watching and involved in the event sure makes for a positive outlook in the industry. We were very impressed by the amount of people that came by the stall to look at the string and chat about Herefords and our program. A major highlight in the show was RSK 6U Miss Sage 64Y bred by RSK Down Under 6U. She was a class winner and named Reserve Junior Yearling Champion Female.

Our trip back home started Wednesday night at about 6:30PM. I made it home in good time with 2 days left to finish setting up for the field day. RSK farms played host to just over 125 head of Hereford cattle as well as just over 200 guests throughout the day, including about 70 international guests from: New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Denmark, UK, England, Switzerland, South Africa, Uruguay, Ireland and USA.

RSK Farms displayed the Reserve Champion 2 yr old female with RSK 154U Miss Tamara 8X owned with Clay Ent., as well as the Reserve Champion Yearling Female with RSK 4L Miss Princess 1Y. We had a small group of ET calves on display as well. We were very fortunate and proud to be able to host this event and show the world what MB Herefords are made of as well as to promote some RSK genetics.

To everyone that helped out at home to get ready for this event, I thank you very much. It would have not been a successful event without your hard work. Also to all the sponsors for their contributions to event, it was greatly appreciated.

Stay tuned for what is next to come from RSK Farms. There will be some exciting offerings and opportunities this fall. Also for any Juniors that are needing Junior Heifers for Bonanza, feel free to stop by and take a look, or watch the RSK website, we would be pleased to work with you on any inquiry. The Junior National is in Brandon next year only 7 miles from the farm. We would be happy to tour you around the operation.
