Champion Div. III Heifer National Junior Show & Congress Korynn Clason & VORT Zowie. Purchased at last year’s sale.

Congratulations We are so proud of you!


2013, WOW!!!!!! Where has a year gone to???????? I always thought the older you got the less busy you were, I guess we are not that old yet. Time is flying by and our VL private treaty sale is Saturday September 28, 2013. We are dry and can use a rain, but some much better off than one year ago now. The summer has been fairly cool overall, but this week they are calling for record temps all across our area. I guess it is still summer. A year ago now we had chopped corn silage already, corn and beans are behind but look pretty good. Pastures need a rain. Be sure to mark Saturday, September 28 10 am—2 pm for our VL private treaty sale, come early, view the cattle and enjoy an awesome brisket lunch and yummy snacks all day. Base bids will be available about 1 week prior to the sale, cattle may be claimed any time prior to sale day. Final bid time is 2 pm. No cattle will be sold prior to September 28. The calves were weaned in early August and are growing and changing daily. A few heifers are getting broke to tie so all is on schedule. The catalog is available online and pictures and videos will be posted in early September. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions or need a paper catalog. As many of you know we are very proud “grandparents” and in early August welcomed 2 new granddaughters to our family, Ava and Dru. Mason and Emlyn are doing a fine job as the 4 year old“big sibling”. Mason is very much into “Skylanders” video games and Emmy loves being the “Princess” with having a real Princess come to her birthday party. Such fun times for them. Roger is SW Iowa’s best little hoof trimmer, putting in long hours farming and still has time (energy)left to do bovine pedicures. He judged a preview show and some county fairs this summer. He loves working the youth and 4-H kids, offering tips of experience along the way. Roger was Ann’s “RIGHT HAND MAN” before and during Westfair this year. He hardly had time to catch the shows. He and Deb do a great job with the Westfair “Sale of Champions” pictures. Always proud of them. In June he took his Dad Richard (92 years young) and Dean Summerbell to Chamberlain, SD area for a couple days of great fishing. Always bring home their limit and lots of stories. I am currently in my 7th year on the Westfair Board serving as secretary. Again I don’t know where the time goes as fair comes faster each year. With 10 of us serving on the board and 25+ activities going on the 80 acres, we can barely keep up, some of us are on speed dial daily. I am financial secretary for the Heartland Limousin Assn. and help out a lot with the Jr. Regional show each year. The Iowa Limousin Sale Coordinator for the Limousin Iowa Beef Expo Sale in February. We love the Limousin family of friends we have gathered thru the breed in the last 28 years, we love watching the kids grow up and now their kids are showing. Again WOW times flies by. We are so very proud of our 3 children and their families and the direction their lives have taken them. Chad, Garin, Emlyn and Dru live in Centennial, Colorado. Chad was recently named Executive Vice-President of Colorado Farm Bureau. He has been with CO Farm Bureau for 7 years and he loves being involved with Colorado agriculture and all the challenges that arise. Garin was also offered a partnership in the Colorado Lobbying Service where she is a lobbyist. She is really good at her job and being involved with Colorado agriculture as well. Emmy just turned 4, had a real princess come to her birthday party!!! She was in ahhhh. She right now loves being mommy’s shadow with baby Dru Olivia who arrived August 8 and we welcome her into our family. I-80 will get a little bit busier with this grandma making CO trips for a grandma fix. Deb lives close by and continues to help out around VL as well as free lance fitting cattle for several firms across the country. She has been extremely busy this last year, and is very thankful for the people she loves working with across all breeds. She was honored to judge showmanship at a couple of state fairs this past summer. Deb enjoys DRIVING, gardening and tending to her yard, playing with Gracie her Golden Retreiver and kittens. She loves to take her wave runner to the lake


even if it is for only an hour!!!!!!!!! She enjoys spending time with family & friends, & LOVES being an AUNT!!!!!!!!! Erica, Josh, Mason and Ava live in Omaha, which makes its alot closer for a Grandma fix. Erica works as a Research Analyst with the MSR Group, it’s a great job with tons of variety so never boring. Josh works at TD Ameritrade and is currently an IT Security Analyst. As with IT in general, the only constant is that everything is always changing. Mason is in preschool and loves being a mentor. At home he helps out by doing some simple chores and earns stickers to buy Skylander characters for his video game. It tooks a couple of days for him but he now loves holding his baby sister Ava Elizabeth who was born August 5. We welcome Ava to our family and enjoy our time with her. Mason comes to the farm only 1 day a week now, so we have to incorporate a lot into that day. We go fishing, play with the kittens, ride the 4 wheeler, play baseball, ride the bike in the shed, go for tractor rides, play on the rock pile, a lot in a day. We are very blessed the opportunites God has given us farming, raising cattle and kids. We hope you can come and share the day with us on September 28. We look forward to visiting with you. Ann & Roger
