ITLA Championship Show - 2017
DCC Ranch e-News #119, Nov-04-2017
The Dickinson family likes to support the ITLA Championship
show, the Horn Showcase and the Ohio River Valley Texas Longhorn
Assn annual shows. After 50 years in this business we don't
really have a place for any more ribbons, buckles or trophies,
yet it is very important to see how the DCC genetics stack up
compared to other serious producers. It is very important to
always have a forward movement toward the very top stock. Here
are the entries and their placings at the ITLA Championship Show
just held in Clovedale, IN with very tough competition.
DCC exhibited one of the older cows, Winning Smile with her 25th
calf. She is a Winchester daughter out of a Fielder daughter.
She won ITLA Non Halter Class #17 and was defeated by her half
sister, also sired by Winchester, for All Age Grand Champion,
Bar S Emotions.
This is Silent Iron by Drag Iron at her first non halter show.
She is over 90" T2T and fresh off a major victory winning the
Horn Showcase for age 4 females. She is 1195 lbs and raising her
3rd calf. She may be the most valuable female ever to show at an
ITLA non Halter Championship. See her with other family members
Drag Shy is a two year old Drag Iron daughter out of a Shy
Streaker cow. She won class #11 Non-Halter and also Champion Sr.
Non Halter Heifer.
Iron Span by Drag Iron and out of Obvious Top by Top Caliber
made us very proud at the ITLA Championship show. This June of
2016, thick, correct calf started by winning the ITLA
Championship Futurity, then judged Champion Intermediate Bull
and then the really big one the best of the best, the ITLA All
Star Futurity. Thanks Kara "Kazoonti" Dickinson for doing a
great job showing your "pal" Iron Span.
Full Pack is a yearling heifer winning in a tough halter class
#6 and also won Champion Jr Heifer. She is a daughter of Jam
Packed, recent Horn Showcase winner for age 5 cows and All Age
Champion at the 2016 ITLA Championship. See Full Pack, Pistol
Packer, Packer, Drop Box, Back Pack, Pokey Pack, Real Jam, and
the dam of them all at DCC.
Time Line is by Rio Grande out of Dragon Pearl by Drag Iron out
of Field Of Pearls. Time Line was a back up bull at Dickinson
Cattle Co for 2017. He was born 4-26-15 and measured 78" T2T on
9-30-17. In the Horn Showcase class 47, age 2 bulls, his T2T per
day of age was superior to well known bulls, Hydro, Mr. Big
Stuff, Viper Dragon, Gold Mine and Heart Breaker. In his first
halter show, shown by Doug Burris, he won ITLA Championship
Halter Bull Class #28 and Reserve Grand Champion Halter All Age
Bull. He is the 3rd son of Dragon Pearl who is believed to go
over 80" T2T soon.
Kookachex is by "Tuff" and out of Sweet Kookateu by Drag Iron.
She was shown by Doug Burris and Lane Morris to win the age 2
halter class #11 and also later won the Reserve Champion Sr.
Heifer. She was voted Elite Cow of all females in the ITLA
DCC would like to thank the 5 panel futurity judges, non halter
judge Lizz Huntsberry and halter judge Dr. Keith Berkeley.
Especially a big thank you to ITLA President Mike Tomey and
first lady Jamie. What a great herd of Longhorn people, all at
one place, living the Longhorn life, and loving it.
