Handmade Item by Dr. John Harker

In today’s marketing the consumer wants to know everything right away, fast, and digitally. In the beef industry, that is no different. Promotional videos of a farm or ranch tells the story of the operation, their goals, and what the customer can expect from them. Videos can highlight the history of the operation or an upcoming sale. Paige Wallace Photography is offering a 2-3-minute promotional video. The buyer must cover all travel and lodging expenses associated with the shoot, and it must be booked within the next year.

Every farm or ranch needs an eye-catching sign for their entrance or stalls at the show. Utilize your logo or photos to create a one of a kind sign; made just for you. What a way to stand out from the crowd! 30” by 18” printed (color) on both sides.

Chandler Bownds Autographed Shirt & Photo

The shirt I ride in represents the sponsors who support and endorse me. The brands I ride for are CINCH, CROWN ROYAL, RESISTOL HATS, BEX SUNGLASSES, REAGOR DYKES AUTO GROUP, DOUBLE D GAME RANCH, and DARK HORSE METAL WORKS. I always wear a purple shirt being a Crown Royal Rider to symbolize the signature and historic color of Crown Royal. These brands are iconic and do so much for our communities. I am proud to represent both in and out of the arena! ERA World Champion Bull Rider; 3x NFR qualifier; 2011 Resistol Rookie of the year.

This painting is named after a remarkable story from one of Michelle Weber’s friends. The story was of a family who had lost almost all their cows and calves in the Atlas blizzard. The woman in the story expressed that years ago they doctored on a deathly ill baldy face cow. When she survived they named her, Hope. After the storm she prayed, “God, it would be a miracle if Hope lived.” Well, Hope did live!! The irony of this story leads Weber to believe, without any doubt, that God has given her this opportunity to share her art & her friends remarkable story of faith.

Attend the Foundation Gala auction event to see the surprise handmade item by Dr. Harker.

4 Handmade Casserole Trivets

Mary Cheek and I received a wooden casserole trivet for Christmas in 1993. Since that time we have used the trivet for every potluck supper we have attended. You can carry the hot casserole dish without fear of getting burned and the wooden pegs keep the dish in place. And the pegs allow the trivet to be used with different sized dishes. There are four trivets; each one is made from a different wood which was harvested from our property. The four wood varieties represented are Loblolly Pine, Bald Cypress, Native Maple, and Cherry.
