Spring has sprung!

Spring is here, with most of the state having a relatively mild winter and below average snowfall. The one thing we can count on living in Michigan is our weather can change in the blink of an eye so April snowfall is not out of the question. Extended daylight and warmer temperatures gives us a new hope as the winter season passes.

Spring is an exciting time of the year with new calves on the ground and seeing how our breeding choices ended up. After calving it’s on to planning for breeding for 2022 and marketing your spring calf crop.

It’s hard to believe that it has been one year since the Covid 19 pandemic has changed everyone’s lives. We have all been impacted by this disease directly or indirectly. The future is looking brighter now though, with vaccinations taking place, helping to build immunity. As we move into summer hopefully life will start returning to a more normal state.

Please take time to cast your votes for current open board positions with enclosed ballot and mail back.

A big thank you to Tammy and Ben who have served on the board with their terms expiring!

Our annual meeting is being changed to our fall show (Fall Spectacular), the same as we had done last year.

Take care and be safe.
