LETTER FRO M T H E P R ES IDENT & M EET T H E C L A S S I C TE A M C a t t l eme n A c r o s s t h e N a t io n ,

here has the time gone? Mother Nature has given W a wide range of challenges this year. Our hearts go out to our fellow cattlemen dealing with the snow storm. We are excited to get the 2014 Classic off and running with some exciting changes that we feel will benefit both consignors and buyers. Plus, we have expanded our youth opportunities at the 2014 Classic. In my travels from Houston to Louisville, the Classic is known for its quality and reputation as the place to purchase your next winner. For the past 23 years we have strived to change with the times to bring you the best event. This year we are striving to make improvements for all cattlemen. I look forward to seeing Cattlemen this Fall and in Je ff Ba sh Pres ide nt Kearney in February.

CLASSIC NEW S regi st er to d ay fo r th e 20 14 cl as si c!

He l l o C a t t l eme n & W ome n . . . Yo u n g & O l d ! The Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic is excited to announce a “new schedule” for the 2014 event. The snow last year during the Classic created lots of conversation. We evaluated the Classic schedule and decided we want to better serve all cattlemen, ranch horse consignors, the junior exhibitors and bring more opportunities to the commercial exhibitors.The Classic Board of Directors and myself decided that it was time to modify the Classic schedule. The Classic will kick off on Saturday, Feb. 15th. The 2014 Classic brings an “opening weekend” for the event. The opening weekend will feature the Classic Ranch Horse events. This year all Ranch Horse events will be for Classic Sale Horses only. This will allow us to better showcase the horses being sold at the Classic.The Classic is extremely excited to have live entertainment and a Barn Dance on this opening day at the Classic. The Classic Ranch Horse Sale will be on Sunday afternoon following the working dog demonstration. On Monday, February 17th the Classic facilities will be ready for the cattle to arrive.Tuesday,

February 18th will be “Cattlemen’s Day” at the Classic.Tuesday morning will hold breed meetings for consignors. We will work with the Nebraska Cattlemen to have a session for “cattlemen”, plus a FREE cattlemen’s lunch. The evening will feature the Cattlemen’s Barn Events that will include the “Old Timers Fitting Contest”. The Classic will challenge each Breed to have a team in the event. The Classic cattle sales start on Wednesday, Feb. 19th with the Hereford, Polled Hereford and Red Angus. The Thursday schedule will feature the Angus, Simmental, Charolais, Limousin, Gelbvieh and the Royal Ice Sale. Friday will conclude the Breed sales with the Shorthorn, Maine Anjou and Chimaine/Chiangus. Friday evening will feature the Commercial Man’s Pen of 5 Sale. Saturday, Feb. 22nd begins the events for Juniors. The morning kicks off with the Judging Contest and junior entry check-in. Saturday will also feature the Fancy Pen of 3 Heifer Sale and Prospect Steer Sale. Then, the showmanship will take place for Juniors on Saturday afternoon.

One change in the Classic Schedule that I am extremely excited about is the modification to the Supreme Drive events on Saturday, Feb. 22nd. The Supreme Drive events kick off at 7 pm with the Classic Premiere Heifer Selection. This will be for all the Juniors that purchase heifers during the sales at the 2014 Classic. We will follow the selection of the Supreme Classic 2014 Champions. Sunday, Feb. 23rd will conclude the Classic with the Junior Show. I don’t have nearly enough room here to review all the new exciting changes we have at the 2014 Classic. Check out all the details in this Connection, watch our website and Facebook page or if you want to talk Since re ly, about the Classic opportunities, Ron e t t e call me directly at R o nette K. H e i n r i c h Manager 308.627.6385. Although I want to share the excitement of the Classic, it is with a heavy heart I want to express prayer and support to all the ranchers in the areas that have faced so much devastation. Who would have ever guessed one corner of the state would experience a major winter storm and the other corner have a tornado. As a farm/ranch girl you learn the harsh reality of the circle of life, but there is no words to describe what the ranchers in Nebraska and South Dakota are experiencing. I speak on behalf of the entire Classic Team when I express our deepest prayer for your families and livestock.

A 201 3 CLASSIC THANK YOU

The 2013 Classic was the first event in the 22 years that the Classic had to cancel a day of sales. We all are reminded too often that the one thing we cannot control in life is Mother Nature. The Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic staff and board of directors want to thank all the cattlemen and commercial exhibitors that worked to make the best of the situation. The Classic also wants to thank KRVN for keeping everyone updated to what was happening at the Classic and spreading the word to all cattlemen of the change in the sale schedules. Thanks KRVN and Live AuctionsTV for all your assistance at the 2013 Classic!
