Nebraska Cattlemen, The Nebraska Cattlemen Classic is setting the stage for the 2012 Show and Sale and building off its momentum of last year’s special 20th anniversary show and sale. The 2011 shows and sales allowed historical revenue to all dog, horse and cattle consignors and with record attendance. The Classic would not exist without its sponsors, and they came through at .16 million in funds to support the grounds, breed champion prizes, Junior Show, scholarships and the Grand Champion Bull/Female. The 2012 Classic is underway and some of the highlights include a new commercial market place, larger seating area for shows & sales, and some added attractions that the whole family can enjoy. Also, featured are educational events, new/current sponsors that will provide resources for optimal beef production, financial -estate planning and much more. The goal of the Classic is to strive for a beef show case of breeding stock that can bring value to its producer.The advantage of implementing superior genetics is a long term investment that can often lead to rewards of efficient production and added financial income. Please check the Classic Catalog listing as there may be an offering for you. The Classic is one of the largest premiere livestock events that the state can enjoy. Its comfortable environment for a winter show will allow producers and spectators of all production stages to renew old friendships and possibly seek new. We promise that you will not go home disappointed. Please stay tuned to hear future announcements from our media packages and our manager Ronette Bush-Heinrich. On behalf of the board and staff we welcome you an invitation to attend the event. “Please support the great Nebraska Beef as it is” Sincerely, for more information: Ronette Bush-Heinrich 308.627.6385 Randy Lenz www.necattlemen.com President of 2011 & 2012 Show PO Box 607 Kearney, NE 68848
