As many of you know I have a little pure bred Angus herd. This has always been a huge dream of mine. Since my father grew up on a ranch of his own I think he passed down his passion and love for showing cattle to me. I was always active in 4-H showing sheep and spent a few years showing steers. Both 4-H and the Nile heifer program changed my life forever.
The Nile Merit Heifer Program is an amazing program that gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I applied two years in a row and was disappointed but in the end it was the best thing that ever happened to me. The second year I applied I pulled up to the mail box and can remember receiving a huge envelope and knew right then I had won!
Current Creek Angus Ranch donated a heifer from their herd. I was offered any yearling heifer I wanted! They are so amazing and they gave me a huge gift. Still to this day I am not sure they know how much they impacted my life.
Today my herd is 10 head and all but two of them are the result of my Nile Merit heifer. I urge you to suggest this program to anyone who is under 17 and loves cattle.
Have a great day! Its raining here and I am off to 16 hours of work :)
