Cut Knife Rancher Takes Top Spot In Calgary

- Meridian Source Staff

Dreams really do come true.

That was the way Cal Ramsay of Carlrams Ranching Ltd. in Cut Knife, Sask. described taking home the Grand Champion banner from Calgary Bull Sale last weekend.

Out of province entries have been allowed to compete in Calgary for roughly six years but this is the first time Ramsay competed in the big show.

"The overall experience was awesome and this is one of the larger shows that we've competed in," said Ramsay.

Cal's father Carl started the ranch in 1948 and the tradition lives on through Cal and his wife Marilyn, son Carl and his family, and daughter Robin and her family, making them the third generation at Carlrams.

"We took two bulls down just because it's something we wanted to do. We got to judge it in 2006 or 2007 and my daughter and I wanted to take some bulls down because it's kind of a prestigious sale and we were lucky enough to have the Grand Champion and the best Pair of Bulls," said Ramsay. "So the hard work paid off."

This isn't Ramsay's first Grand Champion Bull as he took home a banner from Maple Creek, Sask. roughly 15 years ago but this recent win holds a special place in the family's heart with the prestige that Calgary carries.

In Ramsay's words, the lesson learned and taken away from the experience in Calgary is that dreams can come true and hard work pays off.

The most rewarding aspect of being a part of the local cattle industry for Ramsay is the positive reactions he gets from people who are admiring his bulls.

"I started doing this when I was six years old and that was 55 years ago," He said.

Carl Ramsay. Very pleased with the judges choice
