Almosta Gang NWSS 2015

Almosta Gang NWSS 2015

With months of planning and organizing to attend the National Western in Denver, CO; the week has quickly come and gone.

This was Almosta Farm’s 12th year attending and it was probably the best we have had. There were 6 farms with 15 animals and lots of Juniors being a part of the “Almosta Gang” (yes, we have a name to our group). We all worked hard to promote our farms and animals along with laughing even harder. What fun and how proud we were to watch these kids in how they presented their animals and themselves.

A huge Congratulations to Maryn Cowell on being named the Junior Showman Champion and Reilly McConnell for being named the Reserve Junior Showman Champion!!!!!! It doesn’t get much better than that!! This was Maryn and her family’s first NWSS and hopefully, not her last.

Bailey McConnell and her crossbred steer (Shorthorn comsite / highland bull); Almosta Farm’s Wyatt was named the Reserve Crossbred Prospect Steer Champion!!! Congratulations!!

Now that things are unloaded, washed up and put away it’s time to start planning for calving. The first of March will start and should conclude by the first of April with 4 purebred calves coming from Yankee (the last calf crop of his) , 4 purebred calves from Koal and 2 cross bred calves from Koal.

May we all have an uneventful calving season.

We hope everyone had a very special holiday season. With the New Year upon us, we are full steam ahead getting ready for the trip west to the National Western Stock Show held in Denver, CO. This will be Almosta Farm’s 12th year attending.

A few years ago, a group started to travel and be stalled together at the show. We soon realized that we had such as great time and worked so well together it became a tradition. Through the years it has grown into more farms and even a name has popped up as  the “Almosta Gang”. This year we will have 5 farms with 14 animals from MI; NE; CO; and MN in the “Gang”.

Our goal is to work and laugh hard but most of all to promote the breed and our farms. For those of you attending the great event in Denver, please look us up. We’d love to visit with you.

2014 comes to a close

December 8, 2014

I am finally getting things back to normal from my last trip to the NAILE Show in Louisville, KY. We took a side trip to Stanwood,MI to pick up friends: Dawn Manthei, Evelyn Pruitt and their animals. It doesn’t get any better than going to an event with friends. With 2014 coming to an end, it’s time to reflect on […]

Summer 2014 is winding down

August 25, 2014

It is the end of August with next week being Labor Day weekend. That is a sign that summer is winding down. I have no clue where it went. For me it has been the busiest summer I have had in a very long time with many miles put on the truck and trailer and […]

Yankee Tribute

July 8, 2014

It is with a very heavy heart to inform you all of Yankee’s passing. He went down a couple of days ago and had pulled some muscles and /or ligaments in this back leg around the stifle area. With humans we would have surgery to fix it but with an 1800 lb. bull, unfortunately , […]

Summer 2014 is Here!

June 30, 2014

It is already the end of June and summer is in full swing. I am trying to figure out where spring went to. With having a brutally cold winter with no snow, it has been a concern what Mother Nature had in store for us this summer. We have been blessed with lots of timely […]

Calves!

May 6, 2014

As I am looking at the calendar, I have no idea where the time has gone. It’s hard to believe I haven’t touched base since January. But, like most everyone, winter was nothing to write home about. In Nebraska it was extremely cold and dry. At Almosta Farm, March is calving time. It is an […]

Winter is just too Long

January 31, 2014

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 […]

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 […]
