Thanks to committee for Fair heifer show, sale

Dear editor,

Our thanks to the Commercial Heifer Committee for their outstanding heifer sale at the 2012 Rockdale Fair.

What a successful event it has become, raising over $64,000 this year.

We really enjoy seeing the competitors present their animals. Some are starting out so young.

But most importantly, they are learning the basics of an industry that has great potential for them, raising the beef that we all consume.

Thanks, too, to Rockdale Federal Credit Union, Milano Livestock Exchange and Milam County Livestock Auction for their underwriting of the lunch event prior to the sale. And also of course, thanks to the buyers at the sale, and to the parents helping their children manage these animals.

We have bought heifers in previous years that are wonderful additions to our small herd, and know that this event provides terrific platform for these kids further understand the importance healthy livestock bring to successful ranching.

Thanks again to the Fair Committee for its commitment to the youth of Milam County.

Harvey and Jane Holliman hholliman@peoplepc.com
