A Successful Trip to BC

Rob Smith, CAA CEO, and Brian Good, CAA Director of Field Services, made a quick field trip to BC where a number of ranch stops happened including Doug Haughtons Angus Beef, Willow Ranch, Stump Lake Ranch,Guichon Ranch, Douglas Lake Ranch, Quilchena Ranch, and Nicola Ranch. All of these outfits use a high degree of Angus in their programs. 

Lepp Farm Market in Abbotsford, BC, was another stop on our trip. This family owned fresh grocery market is a must-see if you are ever in the area. The store supplies exclusively Angus beef to its consumers and is a strong example of one of our Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed licensed participants. The beef for the store is supplied by Ken Friesen's ranch in Cashe Creek.   

Frank and Beth Plain were also presented with their 50 year membership award. To read the entire press release, click here.

This year is the 113th edition of the Interior Provincial Exhibition Association in Armstrong, BC, held from Aug 30 to Sept 02, 2012. The Supreme Bull went to the Grand Champion Angus (click here to see a photo) -- Poplar Meadows Tiger 4 11 sired by HF Tiger 5T, exhibited by Poplar Meadows Angus and bred by Hamilton Farms. The IPE's Supreme Female also went to the Champion Angus (click here to see a photo) -- Belvin Georgina 18'10 sired by SAV Pioneer 7301, exhibited and bred by Belvin Angus. There were about 60 head at this Gold Show. A great day for Angus!
