Well this is coming a bit late. Dean spent the month of June touring Red Poll farms in ten different eastern and mid west US states and a couple more for just traveling. Spent a day at Purdue University (which has a long history with Red Poll cattle) participating in seminars and their meat lab. Another part day at Purina’s research farm. There was lots of time spent looking at and discussing Red Poll cattle with people from Kenya, England, New Zealand, Australia and of course the US and Canada.
Of course we got to spend time in Nashville and go to the Grand Ole Opry. Many thanks to all the breeders that went to the work of opening their farms and showing their cattle. I was able to take away much more from this trip then the first one I went on in Australia three years ago.
