We Heart NAILE

do share

We really enjoy showing in Louisville at NAILE (North American International Livestock Exhibition). We are stalled by some very nice guys. We get to see friends that we haven’t seen in awhile. And it’s a real challenge to show against some of the best cattle in the nation.

Theo & Iris Freedom Hall

Theo (second from right) showing Iris in Freedom Hall. There were 11 in this class. 5 of the kids were from Illinois.

Two show rings are going at the same time. The pure bred Simmentals and All Other Breeds shows started at 8am. As Theo was showing Iris in on ring, Bella was showing Adelina at the same time on the other site of the fence. We woke up at 4:30am to get the heifers ready for the show.

Zadok showed July in the evening during the Percentage Simmental show in Broadbent Arena.

Z with July in Broadbent Arena. They placed 2nd.

After the Percentage Simmental show ends about 9:pm, we break down the stalls and load everything up in the trailer. This makes for a late night. In the morning we feed and water the heifers and head for home. The weather was perfect the whole time we were in Louisville. As we returned home it started raining.
