This week was a shorter week for me. I enjoyed Monday off at the State Fair in Jackson with my family. I always enjoy going to shows and seeing young people and their livestock projects because I know I would not be where I am today without those experiences. On Wednesday Mr. Crow asked me to clean the trailer out that he took the pigs in to the judging contest on Saturday of the fair. Thankfully that didn’t take as long as I expected due to the high powered hose at the MAFES shop near the dairy. Friday was spent proofing and finalizing the BCIA sale catalog. I had to check to make sure EPDs and pedigrees were correct and also make sure each page was formatted correctly. I often receive sale catalogs and until now did not truly realize the amount of time and effort that goes into them. I’m sure this next week will be extremely busy with AI school coming up.
