When I got home from the CRI meeting in Minneapolis, I jumped right into a rental vehicle with Lorna, Morgan & Clint and we headed out to the river pasture at Double M to check out the fall progeny calves.
After that - we headed to Pendleton for the annual Genex area beef meeting.
Every year, Genex hosts an area meeting for customers and co-op members.
For the past few years, it's been hosted at BMCC and I think it works well for everyone. Dinner is catered and everyone gets to take a short break from calving and hear about the current bull line up at Genex.
This year, Lorna Marshall flew out from Colorado to put on the presentation.
She did a great job and is truly a wealth of knowledge. I love listening to her describe cattle, and I think what I appreciate the most is that she's honest with you. If there's an area you need to protect with a bull, she'll tell you. She'll also narrow a set of bulls down and let you know her favorite. And she knows pedigrees and phenotype as well as anyone in the industry.
A big thank you to everyone who came out last Wednesday for the Genex meeting!
My success be reason enough for you all this AI season!
