ITLA Show and Convention
The DCCI annual Fall Fling and Customer Appreciation day is a wrap. The careful evaluation seminar of weaning bulls was wonderfully received. The mystery of dividing ropers, feeders, exhibition steers and high or low dollar herd sire prospects was dissected, decapitated and punctuated. It is hard to predict the future with young cattle, but there are methods that can make it happen.
On October 25, 2012 Linda and I plan to travel to Oklahoma City to attend the Texas Longhorn Extravaganza. Joel, our son and his family (no city school for them -- they will attend the real Longhorn school) and our son Kirk and his wife Linda Teu, (Teu - means #2), also Chad our middle son and his family will also cut government school and do real Longhorn education. Our family lives the Longhorn life and wouldn't ever want to miss a great event like this. This huge event has about everything you can do with Texas Longhorn Cattle under one roof.
The International Texas Longhorn Championship Show will begin at 8:00 am Friday, the 26th.
At the same time, the Texas Longhorn Marketing Alliance World Championship Horn Measurement for Bulls will be going on. After lunch will be the non-haltered portion of the show.
On Saturday, the 27th at 8:00 am, the Championship Measurement for Cows and Heifers and the ITLA Awards Breakfast will start the events. Then comes the International Texas Longhorn Youth Championship Show. Later that evening will be a TLMA Reception, Dinner and Awards Presentation.
Thanks to the Texas Longhorn Marketing Alliance and to the International Texas Longhorn Association for working together to hold such an exciting event at the same place and time. What a great way to reduce costs for exhibitors -- certain to increase attendance.
In support of both TLMA and ITLA Dickinson Cattle Co Inc has herd sires Clear Win and Tempter entered in the measuring. Five entries are sent in (on time) for the non halter ITLA Championship show. It is the desire of DCCI that every Texas Longhorn appreciator attend these serious events and do a college education in TL evaluation. You can compare all the cattle in every class. Decide if the judges know their stuff? Decide if there is more to a bull than a horn measurement?
You are invited to check out the DCCI entries. Each is home-raised with pedigrees tracing back to 1967. In case you can't come to OKC, or in case you can't find, at the show, which are DCCI's, below are the entries.
