Convention Recap

Hi Folks! It is Katie again, this time I am blogging from the beautiful city of Moose Jaw where our 2014 Convention is being held.

What a convention it has been so far! We kicked it off Thursday with meetings and tours, so there was something for everyone. On Thursday night we had the President's Reception which featured great food, good conversation and the speeches from the five ambassador finalists.

On Friday we had our annual Rancher Endorsed day which included a wonderful panel discussion, guest speaker, lunch, and tour of the Belle Plains Hutterite Colony, and a feedlot. It was a great experience to be a part of and the weather was beautiful and cooperative!

Saturday was filled with speakers, the AGM and the grand banquet where the new 2014 Ambassador was named, and the third annual Building the Legacy Sale was held. Congratulations to Matt Bates, the new ambassador, and to the Canadian Angus Foundation for a very successful sale that raise more than $120,000!

It is a jam packed few days but what a few days it has been! Until next time, stay safe, healthy and have fun!
