2010 - Successful Year at High Country, Welcome 2011

I once read that a farmer looks for a perfect year......the right weather at the right time, good buys when making purchases and high markets when it's time to sell.  I don't know that we have ever had a perfect year, but we sure do strive to each year.

2010 was a very good year for High Country Cattle.  Some of those highlights were due to the time and dedication that each of our family members have put in over the last 27 years and the rest was due to friends, family and clients believing in what we are doing.

Thank you to each and everyone of you who has expressed an interest in our Simmental cattle.  Your support whether it be a comment, phone call, stopping by to visit at the farm or at an event we are attending, an email, viewing our website or blog, making  a purchase or passing our name on to someone in the business, it is all greatly appreciated.

We are really excited for the calves that are due to arrive any day.  For the opportunities that are available to us in the Simmental business and to be part of the Agriculture family.  There are no better people than those that are making their living off of the land and livestock.  2011 is full of opportunities and we look forward to them.
