Old Home Week wrapped up!

Old Home Week is over for another year and I just wanted to thank everyone that helps make the Angus Show run so smoothly!

Thanks to our Judge this week Brent Palsson from Ontario, our judges for the futurity: Bennett Crane, Ralph Irving and Kurt Duncan;  our CAA Maritime Director ,Trevor Welch for being ring man; Bennett Crane for lining up cattle; Trevor MacDonald for superb announcing ( as always!); Kinley and Karly Duncan for their excellent ribbon presenting; Kurt Duncan for gathering sponsorship and prizes for the show, and also posting all results; Joanne Mutch for organizing the social, and prizes from the PEI Angus Association; Sandra and Susan MacKinnon for running all aspects of the PEI Angus Futurity; Hilda Colodey and Les Halliday for tabulating results; Paula Matheson for taking Futurity pictures; Peter Dixon for representing the Angus Association on the OHW beef committee; and all of the sponsors of the show (posted on the blog below).

It takes lots of volunteers to make things run smoothly and many hands make light work!

Congratulations to all of the exhibitors on a great group of Angus cattle, and for surviving the heat wave of Old Home Week 2015!

Great to meet some new Angus breeders from around the Maritimes as well at the show.

I hope to see you all at the Angus shows around the Maritimes in the next few weeks, and the Angus in Action Sale on October 26,2015.

Also- Congratulations to young Angus breeder James Worth who will be representing PEI at the International Livestock judging competition at Agribition this year!
