Random Happenings Update From Mittag Show Cattle!

This time of the year seems to be a very busy time for everyone,
 finishing up planting, starting to bale hay, AIing cows,
 putting in embryos, rinsing heifers, walking lambs and 
this year for us as you've seen on the blog... graduation. 

Tessa's high school graduation and party went very well
 and we are very proud of her for her accomplishments
 and the scholarships and awards she received just prior to graduation.

Since classes finished at NWMSU,
 Tucker has been very busy building 
an impressive list of customers for Mittag Design, 
Thanks to everyone who has taken advantage of his services. 
 If you need print ads, banners, websites and
 coming real soon Video, contact him.
 He has also completed an AI class, 
so hopefully can help me with that process.

We are finally done waiting for those last 2 cows to calve.
  It always seems that there are those couple cows
 that for some reason decide not to settle with the
 rest of them and calve a lot later... Glad to be done calving anyway.

Farm Boys Hearty Food Co. has been very busy
 and selling near record numbers of burritos and adding new products,
 if you haven't done so already
 you need to check them out on Saturday mornings
 at the Downtown DesMoines Farmers' Market.

I have quite a number of shows to judge
 again this summer
 and the list of shows Tess wants to hit
 seems to keep getting longer. 
 The Orient-Macksburg FFA is planning their 
1st Annual hog and lamb show
 on Sat., June 23rd. 
 Tess is a Show Co-Chairman and FFA President
 so hope to see a big crowd in Greenfield.

Look for our showstring of Feeder Calves
 again this year at the Iowa State Fair! 
 This year's calf crop is looking very impressive.

This September will be a little different for Anita and I 
when both kids move off to college. 
 Tucker and Tess will both be attending
 Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO. 
 In addition to a quiet house
 we are moving our Showman's Choice Sale
 that has been held on Labor Day 
for the last 10 years to September 16. 
 Hopefully by moving the sale 2 weeks later 
we can avoid some of that extreme August heat. 
 Calves will still be available for viewing 
on Labor Day weekend.  
Hope to see you at the sale!
