Giving Back & Mentoring
This past few months has been devastating to many of our fellow Angus families due to the floods in Colorado and the Blizzards in South Dakota. As I prayed for these families, I thought of what some of my mentors would do, and that is when it came to me that it was my mentor that needed help.
Angus breeder Keith Russell, Berthoud, Colorado has been a mentor & friend to hundreds of us through the years. In the past 12 months, Keith has lost his wife and with the flood, he has lost all of his winter feed, all equipment, severe damage to all fences & building, including his home and is left with mud everywhere. We know he is not in favor of us doing this, but we also know it is the right thing to do.
Jeff & Diana Grill of South Dakota have a young family and seem young to be mentors. As I have watched this young family grow, we all would hope our kids to grow up like them. Their loss was great in blizzard of 2013.
I am putting this together, John Patterson & I want to thank all the folks that donated semen & embryos. A special thanks to DV Auction for hosting this On Line Sale.
