President Mark Keller

Fall is now upon us, and the Big E
and World Beef Expo are now behind
us. I would like to congratulate all the
exhibitors and spectators that have
participated in these events. Please
review the results of the Big E in this
newsletter. These types of shows are
what really get the public involved
allowing the Belted Galloway some
deserved publicity.
   I hope through all of the trying
times in this market place, that each
of you can find a way to develop new
markets for our cattle. We have actu-
ally sold our first grass finished steer,
and I am amazed at the eager re-
sponse of buyers for this product in
our area.
  Good luck to all of you, and thanks
again for the support that you as
members give this organization all                 Prock Ridge Calgary. Overall Supreme Champion of all breeds at Fryeburg Fair, Win-
