Inaugural Feedlot Challenge

Michael Latimer and I represented the Canadian Angus Association at the Feedlot Challenge 2010 sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health. It was held at Easter Day Feedlot north of Coaldale, Alberta. This is a beautiful location with absolutely stunning scenery.

Ten teams of four competed in skill tests that involved vaccinating and implanting cattle in chutes. The teams also had to handle cattle from horseback and write a test. Three Pfizer veterinarians acted as judges. Prizes were awarded during the evening following a barbecue.

This was the first time this event was held and it was enjoyable. It looks like it took a lot of work to organize but it was worth it. This was a very good deal that promises to be bigger and better next year.
