Bonanza 2016 “Burning the Hereford Brand” and CHA AGM
Thanks to all of those that were involved in organizing and implementing another great Bonanza Junior Hereford competition. In all 149 Junior members from Canada, USA and Mexico took part in this year’s festivities. Over the week the Juniors showed 235 head of cattle from all across Canada.

During the open show Judge Garth Cutler chose the cow calf pair of RVP 51X ABLAZE 7A with calf at side HARVIE RSK MS AUTUM 32D as the Grand Champion female, exhibited by Jacey Massey. Reserve Champion female was awarded to NEXT GEN RIESLING 295 ET exhibited by Morgan MacIntyre. Grand Champion Bull was awarded to XLP KPH LCHP TRIBUTE ET 707B exhibited by Lexi O’Connor and Reserve Champion bull was awarded to TRIPLE A 47R DINO ET 112D exhibited by Luke Andrews.

During the CHA Board meetings elections took place for President, Vice President and Pedigree Committee Chairman. Dr. Doug Mann (SK) was elected President, Albert Rimke (MB) was elected into office as the Vice President and Nels Nixdorff (AB) was re-elected as Pedigree Committee Chairman. These changes to the CHA Board Executive will take effect on Jan 1st 2017.

At the CJHA National Council meeting Samantha Rimke was elected as the new CJHA President, Morgan Heidecker was elected as the new Vice President, Jade Ouellet was elected as Secretary and Allison Mastine was re-elected to the role of CJHA Communications. Many thanks to our dedicated group of CJHA Council Members who work very hard to continue the legacy of the CJHA’s national programing.

During the Bonanza Banquet the Keith Gilmore Foundation (KGF) awarded over $30,000 in scholarships to CJHA members and young leaders in the beef industry. With the help of Auctioneer Bob Baylog, Baylog Auction Services, the auction raised over $23,000 to help fund future scholarships from the KGF. A special thanks to Blair-Athol Herefords, Remitall-West Polled Herefords, Braun Ranching, Harvie Ranching, YV Ranch, and Livestock Media Plus for your sponsorship and donations that made this auction possible.

We welcome everyone to Bonanza 2017 to be held in Abbotsford, BC July 17-21 2017 – come be a part of the legacy!
