It's been a busy week at the ranch with our first guests arriving tonight to lay over cattle waiting for Friday and move in day for the Lowline Angus. I was up early this morning to get the American Lowline Registry booth up to the International Room! A huge amount of credit goes out to Paula Kluding for getting this great display together. What a thrill to walk into the room and realize only two booths already set up by the Charolais and Braunvieh. The Red Brangus was in the process of being set up. I was thrilled to have a wide choice of places to set our booth up! The Ag Economist mind kicked in and we truly had the best spot when walking out of the registration area where international guest enter and exit the room. The Red Brangus had claimed 'the' best spot as their booth can be seen from the whole room. Next year instead of 10:00am I'll be waiting at 8:00am! I'd like to thank the volunteers of the International Committee for all of the tremendous work they do for visitors and for those breed representatives assigned to promote their breed!
I would like this opportunity to welcome all visitors and exhibitors to HLSR, but especially to our International Visitors. We are so excited to be welcoming the Big Island Lowlines owned by the Gottas' of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada as exhibitors under the capable hands of Murray Skippen. Other Lowline visitors will be representing Australia, Costa Rica and Belize. Welcome once again to the largest and greatest international livestock show in the world, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo! Houston is Rodeo Proud for the next three weeks! The largest social event in the city!
