Churchill, Stuber, Iron Lake donate heifer to benefit hereford youth
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Churchill Cattle Co., Stuber Ranch and Iron Lake Ranch have joined together to graciously donate CCC SR ILR Foundation Lady 437B ET to sell as Lot 1, the foundation female, Jan. 16, 2015, during the Mile High Night Sale at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. All proceeds will benefit the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and the “Growing a Lasting Legacy” campaign supporting leadership and education for the next generation of Hereford youth.
“Foundation Lady embodies everything the Hereford breed is about. She is ultra-maternal, great-structured and has a hard-to-find combination of an elite balanced look and power. She is sired by the very popular 88X bull. This female has the pedigree and phenotype that can make a major impact,” says Brady Jensen, National Junior Hereford Association chairman.
She is a Jan. 2014 daughter of NJW 98S R117 Ribeye 88X ET and out of the phenomenal dam Churchill Lady 1162Y ET by Golden Oak Outcross 18U.
“This unique female, truly from the heart of the breeders’ programs, possesses the most sought after genetics and phenotype in the highly competitive Hereford business,” says Ray Ramsey, HYFA president. “The funds generated from this, and other, donations will help insure that our ultra-successful junior programs will continue and flourish, complimenting the total Hereford industry.”
Thank you to Churchill Cattle Co., Manhattan, Mont.; Stuber Ranch, Bowman, N.D.; and Iron Lake Ranch, Athens, Texas, for donating this phenomenal heifer calf to highlight the Mile High Night Sale.
