4H Success:

This year James participated in the Mervin 4H beef club. He took both a steer and a heifer project.
James ended up winning Senior Grand Aggregate - placing first in Speeches, Grooming and Showmanship and tying for first in Senior Heifer Judging.
The Heifer: Royal S Eston Anne 5E won Reserve Grand Ch. Female.
Look for Melissa out later this summer and fall showing this heifer.


Adventures in Embryo Transfer:

We purchased Royal Pride Dolly 46P from the Sisson Bros in December. She had a beautiful Heifer calf in February and we decided to have her flushed. Bow Valley Genetics were awesome to work with. Sending out the protocols and instructions to super ovulate her and also synchronize the recipients. We were very fortunate to get 6 embryos from the flush and implant them all into the waiting recipients. Hoping for some great calves next spring.
