Working hard to get ready for the Fair!

We have enjoyed getting out to some early shows and seeing how everyone has done with their projects. Good Job Studer family for their nice showing at the Minidoka County Fair in Rupert, Idaho with 4th place overall, and also to the Belnap family for their 4th place overall finish at the Bingham County Fair in Blackfoot, Idaho.

Big Congratulations to Randa Allen from Richfield, Idaho who won Grand Champion at the Lincoln County Fair, in Shoshone, Idaho with her homegrown raised steer & Barker Genetics! The Sunseeker heifer they bought in 2009 has been bred to Barker Bulls the past 2 years and has now won back to back Grand Champion!

The kids have really been working hard to get their steers & heifers ready to go to the Fair.  We're looking forward to hearing about more successes as the Fairs are in full swing now.
