                    s long-time Iowa Charolais Breeders' Association members, our family was honored to
                    receive the American International Charolais Association (AICA) Outstanding Seedstock
    Producer Award in 2003, presented by Neil Orth, Executive Vice-President, at the Iowa Beef Expo.
                                             
 "As a beef producer, running cows
 combines a sincere love of cattle
 with the enjoyment of independence
 and solitude. On a daily basis, it is
 the beef producer and the cows.
 You get to know the cattle, and the
 cattle know you. This is extremely
 important in order to survive the
 long run in this business."

            Besides the state and county level, our family has exhibited
            cattle nationally at all of the major shows including KC,
            Louisville, Houston, and Denver back when our children were
            junior members and on the show circuit.  But these days, you
            will always find us at the Iowa State Fair for the Open Charolais
            Show on the last Saturday of the fair, and we have a female on
            display during the fair in the Avenue of Breeds representing the
            Charolais breed.
