Crystal winning Senior Showmanship at the Drayton Valley ShowDrayton Valley is a community about 1/2 from our farm. They have held a Livestock Show there for nearly 20 years. It has several components to it, a junior show, an open breeding cattle show, a steer show and a pen heifer show. Now you may think that a little one day show out in the middle of no where (according to some people) is not worth writing or reading about. But Drayton Valley's show is pretty special. This year's show will be held on Saturday June 12. It is one of the most competitive summer shows in Alberta and maybe Western Canada. In years past we have had strong competition. For example in the steer show one year all of the finalists were class winners at the Calgary Stampede steer show a few weeks later.
