Let it Snow!

It snowed all day yesterday and although it was slowly melting off, there was still snow left on the ground today along with a little bit of ice. Big deal for us Central Texas folks... so of course we decided that we needed to make Georgia's first snowman. By the time I could get Georgia bundled up and recruited some help (mostly Frank!), the snow was beginning to melt quickly. It wouldn't be right without a little touch of Tusa Show Cattle as you can see on the snowman's head...

Awesome San Antonio 2010!

We were so excited when Kacy Bland's steer was slapped in the AT&T Center on Friday night as the "RESERVE GRAND CHAMPION STEER" at the 2010 San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo. What an amazing honor and finally this big win in San Antonio. Kacy and her family did an awesome job all year. This calf was sold in our 2009 High Stakes Sale and was lot 236 in the sale last spring which was our high seller for the sale. Her steer sold this Saturday in the Premium Auction for $45,000! Congratulations to Kacy and her family on working hard all year - it definitely was worth it!
We also want to congratulate the Lastovica Family from Salado. Stephanie's steer was honored with the Champion Limousin Steer honors at San Antonio this past week.
Congratulations to many of our other clients on placing well in their classes and making the sale. Keep it up everyone - good luck to those of you going to San Angelo this week and we look forward to seeing you in Houston in a few weeks!
