Thanks to Matt Lautner for offering to purchase 
our entire set of 18 Black Power Play calves.
We have however decided to sell these calves on our fall online sales.

Mittag Show Cattle has always offered our very best 
in The Showman's Choice Sale in September with no calves sold prior) and this year
we are planning to have a 2nd sale in October consisting of the younger calves that aren't
quite ready for The Showman's Choice Sale.

Quality will be extremely high in BOTH sales this year!

The landscaping around the show barn is coming along great!

Cool Pic!

Captured this pic in the pasture.
"One of my favorite calves, sired by Black Power Play"

Cows are in the pasture!

Always great have the cows hauled to the pasture!

This will no doubt be the strongest set of calves ever offered in The Showman's Choice Sale!  The Mittag Show Cattle offering is easily the best set we have ever had and after talking to Ky last night, Stierwalts feel this year is their best set of calves that they have ever raised!

Watch for updates all summer!
