Hello Cattle Friends Young & Old!
I am excited to invite everyone to the 24th Annual Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic. Last year we announced a new schedule for the Classic. This year we are working to improve all the opportunities for cattlemen young and old at the Classic.
Summertime seems to go faster and faster every year. In June, we held our Cattle Feeders Tour for the youth who purchased heifers or steers at the Classic. We had a great day with 14 youth from across the state of Nebraska. I want to thank the parents of these youth for allowing them to spend the day with us. It was an honor to meet and get to know these “future leaders” in the Beef Industry.
This fall our goal is to spend more time out in the country and less time in front of the computer. We want to personally invite cattlemen to be a part of the 24th Annual Classic this February. The Classic is “your event” to showcase your seedstock to other cattlemen from all across the Midwest. We want to showcase a tremendous set of Horses, Bulls, Bred Heifers and Heifers this February at the Classic!
The Classic will kick off on opening weekend Saturday, February 14th and Sunday, February 15th. The opening weekend features the Ranch Rodeo, Ranch Horse Competition and Ranch Horse Sale. The weekend will also feature displays in the Classic Market Place. Monday, February 16 will be
set-up day for the cattle to begin arriving. Tuesday, February 17 is Cattlemen’s Day at the
Classic. Don’t miss the unique opportunities for you on this day at the Classic.
Wednesday, February 18th will begin the cattle shows and sales for the week at the Classic. The cattle shows and sales continue through Saturday, February 21st. The week long events will conclude on Junior weekend with Junior Show, Judging Contest and The Grand Finale... Supreme Row Judging.
The Classic Team is working to finish all the details for a FABULOUS Classic this February. Mark your calendars for the Classic, February 14-22, 2015. I may be stopping to visit you this Fall. If you have questions or would really like to see me at your Ranch, give me a call at 308.627.6385.
