Preparing to flush Miss Snookie to Blaze Of Glory.  
Miss Snookie was purchased from Holtkamp and is the
mother of the 3/4 Simmental heifer we sold to Jeremy Clark 
and was an 18 time Champion (pictured below) for the Simon family from Arkansas.
We are really excited about the Blaze Of Glory x Miss Snookie 3/4 Simmentals.
Thank you for using Picture and Video Messaging by U.S. Cellular. See for info.


First of all we would like to say "Thank You" to Rieck and Lents Show Cattle
for their 8 year participation in The Showman's Choice Sale.
Dave, Wayne and Chad have been a big reason for The Showman's Choice success.
However, as they foresee upcoming changes in their operation, they have decided to market
their cattle differently as they proceed in the future.
Therefore Mittag Show Cattle would like to wish our friends continued success and best of luck.

With that said, we are currently making plans for the 2017 Showman's Choice Sale and look forward
to the changes that this opportunity has given us.
Watch our Blog, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Ads for details on our 2017 Sale!
