2010 Gold Show Honorees

The PEI Angus Association is proud to announce that Frank and Iva Mutch of Earnscliffe Angus Farm are the 2010 Gold Show Honorees for the Angus show at Old Home Week in Charlottetown on Friday, August 20th.

Frank and Iva have been raising Angus cattle since shortly after they got married in 1955. In fact, Frank and Iva purchased their first purebred Angus cow in 1961. All of their children grew up showing Angus cattle in 4-H and today some of the children, and grandchildren continue the tradition of breeding and showing Angus cattle. Frank and Iva grew their Purebred Angus herd in the 1970’s and 1980’s to about 50 cows and always had an Angus bull in the pasture.

Frank has served as a director for the PEI and the Maritime Angus Association, as well as the Maritime Angus field man. He was also inducted into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1991 for his dedication to the agriculture industry on PEI.

Frank and Iva were active around the show circuit for many years, competing at shows all across Eastern Canada, including the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, the Montreal Agricultural show, Atlantic Winter Fair, Old Home Week ; Angus shows in Crapaud, Dundas, Fredericton, St. John, and Windsor;  4-H shows and Maritime Angus Field Days. Their living room wall, filled with Champion photographs dating from the 1960’s all the way to 2001, is a testament in itself to the dedication and success they have had breeding Angus cattle.
They exhibited Angus steers at the PEI Easter Beef Show and Sale, and have sponsored the Champion Angus Perpetual Trophy for the last number of years
They have consigned to Angus sales across the Maritimes including the Maritime Angus Field Day Sale, the Angus in Action Sale, and have sold cattle privately to cattle breeders in six Canadian provinces.
Frank and Iva have also been active in their community serving as leaders in the local 4-H club, and Iva keeping active in the Women’s Institute.  They were, and still are always ready and willing to help out with community activities if need be.

Frank and Iva dispersed their last Angus cow a few years ago, however they still keeps up on all the association happenings and they are a fixture in the stands at any cattle shows going on in the Maritimes.  Frank also enjoys checking out the Angus cows in his front field (he likes to claim they are his own!).
