Presenting our family with the 50 Year Canadian Angus Association Heritage Award is CAA President Corinne Gibson (in red) and CAA Commercial Liaison Brian Good (to right).
It is a great honor to have 4 generations active and present to receive the award ... but absolutely none of our purebred program would be possible without the great support of our customers over the years.
We proudly share this achievement with our customers and friends.

Mark spent four days + with us ~ and quite honestly we can't thank him enough!! To Mark's wife Claire, and family, a heartfelt thank you!
