June started off with taking a quick trip to Iowa to visit Crystal and to meet Jon's family.

We also took a few animals to the Drayton Valley Livestock Show. It's a good thing this show happens early on as this is the only way that we get those first few calves halter broke.
July the weather did not cooperate and our swath grazing was very delayed being planted and then got washed away with 4 inches of rain, two days after planting. Sure not the success if was last year, so the cows have already been turned into it.
In August we were honored to attend the wedding of Stefon and Becca Beechinor. The wedding was held in their hip roof barn that is on their farm and over 100 years old.

Then we headed to BC to judge the Vanderhoof 4H Show and the Open show that hosted the Angus Gold Show. Some really good cattle and met some great people. (even some from Kansas!)
