It has once again been a very busy and productive fall for the OSA board and its members. This past show season was the first time for our point shows across the province the champion male and female will be announced in the near future so stay tuned for that!
The first big event of the fall was the All Ontario Shorthorn Show at Markham Fair. Champion Female went to Hill Haven Farm and McQueen-Vue Farms of Duntroon, ON., and Champion Bull to RK Cattle Co. of Moorefield, ON. Premier breeder and exhibitor went to Blenview Farms from Arthur, ON. Candid photos from the day can be viewed at http://www.markhamfair.ca/canadas-largest-4-day-agricultural-fair-6/photos/2014-saturday-shorthorn-show-photos/
The next fall event was the Ontario Shorthorn Association Fall Classic Sale that was held October 18th at David Carson Farms and Auction Services in Listowel, ON. It was a nice day for a sale with a full sales arena of active bidders. Sale results can be viewed by clicking on the following documents:
