Jam Packed July

A Jam Packed July-  by Keltey

This month has been an incredibly busy but fun one!

I, along with Katie and Sophie, spent the duration of the Calgary Stampede working in the Cattle Trail. There, we educated visitors about Angus, and the beef industry itself. It was a fun way to spend the week, and great to see so many people of all ages interested and excited about our great industry!

After Stampede, there were a couple days to recuperate, and then Rob, Brian, and I set out from Angus Central to Canadian Junior Angus Showdown in Virden, MB! It was a pretty long drive (11 hours) but a really fun time with two of Angus’ biggest promoters. This was my first Showdown ever, and I can honestly say it was one of the best junior shows I have been to. I was so impressed with the keen juniors who are dedicated to the Angus breed and making their national junior show a success. Showdown saw close to 100 juniors and over 120 head of cattle. I spent much of time at Showdown taking photos of juniors, managing the Canadian Angus twitter account, and assisting Belinda and the junior board wherever needed. It was great to meet so many new people and enjoy Showdown with them! I am already excited for Showdown next summer, in Olds, AB.

It’s hard to believe there are only a few weeks left in my internship. Time really has flown by this summer, but I am excited to see what comes next!
