Last fall at Agribition Ken Lewis, and old family friend of ours, and I started talking about my job. Ken was really interesting in working with my boss and I on a video the following summer. I was super excited when the details all came together because 1. it meant a trip home and 2. I spent the first six years of my life on Lewis Farms when mom and dad were managers there.
Right after the World Angus Forum I headed out to Spruce Grove to meet up with Jordan. The first day we traveled to the Sangudo place, which is about a hour northwest of the home farm. It had been a long time since I had been up in that part of the country and it is still beautiful. You can't beat Canadian summers. No humidity, trees, canola in bloom, clouds and it says light out until ten o'clock.
It was also great to see some Simmental cattle. Most of my time is spent shooting Angus, and don't get me wrong of have seen some awfully good Angus cows this year. Simmental are the closest to my heart though!
The calves looked awesome. Especially, some bull calves out of a specific sire group. I am not going to give the name away because now it is Jordan, Kyle's and my little secret. You'll just have to take a trip out there yourself to see how things look.
