Today was the first day of our open house -- the day one that starts today and ends Tuesday when we end our online sale (see www.pvfangus.com). We had people here from Springfield and Peoria. And then there were people from North Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Louisiana and even south of interstate 70! This weekend is one of the busiest for purebred cattle producers and this area of Illinois tends to be a hotbed of activity.
Things I like about having a open house: we can offer hospitality to people that come to see our calves. Most times when people come they just wander through our pastures then leave. We will do this again tomorrow with more food and more cow washing.
