      C.L.A. Report
      by Ian Hamilton
                                 Our Manitoba Meeting is
                          complete and the message I will
                          take to the C.L,A. is to increase the
                          marketing budget.
                             We have a great breed and must
                          tell everyone we can of the many
                              My new position on the C.L.A.
                          is membership committee chair.
       If anyone has any ideas that I can use to enhance mem-
bership or improve things for the membership we have, give
me a call.
   Remember to get the “SALE” on non enrolled cows en-
rolled before March 31st. This is a one time deal and if you

              Commercial Breeder of the Year:

                                         Alvin Findlay,

    It is a great honour to announce our
Manitoba Limousin Commercial
Breeder of the Year: Alvin Findlay of
Snowflake, MB.
    Alvin started farming before a lot of
us were born. He is a proud, hard-
working gentleman that has put his eve-
rything into the soil and his cattle. He
has always been an innovator and will-

expanded            his      farm        to
3 700 acres of which 1900 are pasture
and hay land. He runs 260 cows and
will calve out 90 heifers as well this year.
    One of the innovations that Alvin has
created is the “shark cage” for his bidi-
rectional tractor. Unless you’ve got a
couple of good cowboys that can rope
and ride or a handling system in every
pasture you could use one of these. This
was an idea picked up by Grain News
and lots of ranchers copied Alvin’s idea.
    Alvin was one of the first in our area
to make hay silage bales, but not in the
tube. He makes a stack of about 140
bales, covers it in plastic, removes the Left-right: Alvin Findlay accepts jacket from Ian Hamilton and Travis Hunter

on both the membership and scholarship committees.
    Ellen is an active member of the Agribusiness Student’s
Association and participated in the Stockman’s Club judg-
ing team in Winnipeg. She has worked summers to put her-
self through University with 4-H projects and showing cattle
as well as working for various businesses.
    “As a young producer myself, I look forward to continu-
ing to raise beef cattle. This is another reason why the beef
industry is so important. It is a future focus for many young
people like myself, who find the industry to be interesting
and rewarding and want to stay involved. In spite of hard-
ships encountered over the past few years, it is rewarding to
see how important our beef industry is to people of Mani-
toba, both young and old, whether they are a producer or
consumers of the final product,” says Ellen.
    We congratulate Ellen and wish her all the best in the
future and know that Limousin will continue to play a role in
years to come.
