What a joke for us to show in the open show when high percentage-real Chianina -are discriminated against and placed last . Judges like Mark Houge picked 2 years in a row says it all. Congrats on being put on probation you're doing a hell'va job Iowa!!
Your Iowa chianina association is a joke! The only thing worse is your national assoc. As far as I know their percentages on registrations are the lowest for any animal in the world. Who in their right mind in any association would have reg. as low as 1%? Also this has allowed dirty pedigrees and many other problems from other breeds into their registry! They've lost members and shows and sales at a unacceptable rate but continue on whipping a dead horse instead of improving their breed. Maybe its because of what the board is raising!!!
