The Crown Jewel Event.

There are people in the world who are out there working their butts off, have developed and possess a cache of knowledge, are honest and are willing and able to help others along the way.

Brad and Dawn are people like that.

The first time I remember meeting Brad and Dawn, we were flushing their donor cows at the OSU ranch in the early 2000's.  They were young and ambitious and were utilizing a program the ranch offered back then where you could put your embryos into the ranch's commercial cows, and buy the weaned ET calf off of the cow for a premium.   After I graduated, and was working at a coffee shop, Brad and Dawn let me tag along to shows with them, and I'd babysit their daughter Fallon while they fitted & showed.  Later on, Brad would give me my first {real} job at VSI and they've always remained great, great friends of ours.

In 2011 they hosted their first sale and it was a tremendous success. 2012 was no different, and I was excited to head to Madras to help with the 2013 Crown Jewel Event.

I was busy clerking, so Maddee Moore commanded my camera and captured some great shots.

Congratulations to the Gohr's and here's to a year of success for all of the kids who purchased heifers & steers!
