2004 NATIONALS
Wisconsin Beef Expo
Pat (Twin Fir) and I traveled across the country from Spokane to Wisconsin for the Nationals.
I had entered 3 bull calves, 1 heifer and 1 bull, but at Spokane I sold 2 bull calves, and my
heifer Pecan wasn't feeling well-so I sent her home; so I only ended up taking 2 animals,
Pirateer (who I had pre-sold to deliver to Wisconsin) and the bull Smokin Gun. Well by the
time the show took place both were feeling under the weather.  Smokin didn't show well and
was beaten by Twin Fir Orlando, who won National Champion Bull ( he beat Orlando in
Spokane).  And though Pirate didn't feel well, he still got a 3rd of 6 bull calves in his class.
Above is the Supreme all Breed Bull class Championship, that's Orlando's butt.
And below is Twin Fir China Doll, Who won the National Champion Female  
(photo taken in Spokane where she was the Regional Champion Female).
China Doll is a daughter of  Frame Up.  Orlando a son of Wenslydale.
