Almosta Farm’s Becky

Almosta farm is proud to offer Almosta Farm’s Becky for your consideration.

She is out of our Senior Bull, Spring Flight Connecticut Yankee (D) and a daughter of LEA Bancroft (D) *

Yankee and this female line (mother & daughter) have consistently produced quality heifers that are structurally correct, well muscled and great mothers with sweet dispositions. These genetics have excelled in all situations; whether it’s in the show ring, in a grass fed operation or any other situation. With her sweet disposition, she will become a great asset in any breeding program.

I am sure most of us are counting the days until spring. It certainly has been a very strange winter. Some folks have too much snow and in other areas not enough moisture. We have had 2 inches so far and there are cracks in the ground wide enough a cat could fall in.

It takes many months of planning to get ready for the National Western Stock Show; from choosing the animals that will be shown to whom I am going to submit into the National Sale. As the years have past, a little group of us started to work together, which is now called the “Almosta Gang”. It all started with Pell Creek Highlands from Balaton, MN and this year it had grown to include Kate Zander from Cross Plains, WI, the DeLuke family from Yoder, CO and Ain’t Right Ranch from Platteville, CO. Altogether we had 11 animals to take and prepare for the show. There were many hours spent in the wash rack and grooming chutes to make sure everyone looked their best.

2014-Denver-Stock-Show-020In our group Kate, Eric and Logan DeLuke were showing at the Stock Show for the first time. To watch their faces as they went into the ring was priceless. Not to mention they did a terrific job and placed very well.

A big Thank You to the Poss family from Kimball, NE for all of their help on show day. Emily did such a terrific job helping Logan show his heifer . She also did a great job showing my little bull and heifer when I needed an extra pair of capable hands.

Bailey and Reilly McConnell’s showmanship skills had improved so much through the years; they both came out with Championship banners for their age group plus, Bailey was Reserve Supreme Champion Showman. I couldn’t be more proud.

Thank you to Ruth Ann Holmes and Eric DeLuke for doing a terrific job in the sale ring during the National Sale with my heifer. But most of all, Thank You to the Holmes family for buying Ivee. I wish them nothing but the best.

As we got everything loaded and were heading out of Denver; yes, we were tired but oh, what special memories we are bringing home with us. It doesn’t get much better than sharing friendships and the Highlands.

Now, it’s time to think about all of the new calves that will be coming in 4 weeks. May we all have a healthy calving season.

Fall 2013

October 14, 2013

We have had a very warm, beautiful fall so far. But as the case all good things will come to an end. We are finishing up some new dry lot/ holding pens and I am happy to say that we may be done with fencing. The calves have been weaned, their vaccinations behind them and are […]

Summer is gone too fast

August 3, 2013

I am sure I am like everyone else, the summer is going too fast. We have had some timely rain, so the pastures are holding their own. We had our first fog this past week, so if the old wives’ tale holds true; there might be snow on Halloween. What a special summer it has […]

Matthew Mueller’s Story

April 30, 2013

A couple of years ago, I met a young guy named Matthew Mueller from Austin, MN at our fall show with his family. He was so much fun to watch, as he soon became a very capable showman with a great sense of humor. I found out that he was very involved with 4-H and […]

Spring- I think?

April 24, 2013

The calendar says that we are well into spring, but Mother Nature has had other ideas. In the past 2 weeks, we have had 3 snow storms with about 11 inches of snow total. It has been quite warm so it’s been very heavy; full of much needed moisture. We have also gotten quite a […]

Happy New Year to Everyone!

January 2, 2013

Every year seems to have its challenges and I feel that is how we learn life lessons along the way. But, I will say that 2012 seemed to present more than its share; whether it was animal or weather related. So, I didn’t realize just how far behind I was on my updates, until just […]

Fall and the Show Season 2012

October 1, 2012

Fall is finally here. I never thought I would say that I am glad to see summer go, but this year we are. As with many folks throughout the Midwest, we are continuing to be in the worst drought since 1936. On the upside, with fall in full swing the temperatures have dropped and it […]
