Chewing The Cud 2.9.24

Does anyone else feel like winter is playing a foul trick on us? It's 61 degrees at the end of January. It seems odd to me. I have a feeling we are going to pay for this sooner rather than later. I will say I am taking full advantage of this “false spring” while the getting is good! 

In mid-January, we hosted our 2nd Annual Hunt In The Hills Coyote Calling Contest. Mother nature was no friend to us that weekend. With a high of a chilling 18 above, we managed to wrangle in some teams to compete in the cold. A total of 42 coyotes were checked in, with the largest coyote being 38 pounds. The winning team had 8 coyotes, the second had 6, and the third had 5. Another successful event is in the books for the 2024 year. 

We are up to our necks in bull sales and loving every minute of it! With the calving season upon us, remember now is the time to talk about the coming year's crop. Please check out our sales calendar to see what sales are coming up. If you would like help advertising your sale, let us know. We would be happy to help! 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the newest addition to the Sandhills Cattle Association: Eva Sampson. She joined the team on January 29th and hails from the great town of Ashby, Nebraska. We are excited to have her on the team and look forward to seeing what the future has in store!

Our 2024-25 scholarship application deadline is approaching fast, but don't fret- there is still time to submit your applications. We award annually over $7,000 to multiple students in several different communities. Please help us spread the word! Send this to a student you know! 

We hope you are geared up for calving and that those mommas treat you well.

Until next time!
