Hereford Champions Selected at North American
KP Real Deal 446 walked out of Freedom Hall a winner at the 2006 North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) National Hereford Show on Nov. 16 in Louisville, Ky. The 2-year-old bull, sired by BP Kahlua 38M, is co-owned by Daugherty Cattle Co., Clovis, N.M., and Kyle Perez, Nara Visa, N.M.
Tommy Coley, Birmingham, Iowa, evaluated the Hereford lineup and sorted through 212 heifers and bulls.
Cottonwood Springs Farm, Cedar, Mich., exhibited the champion yearling bull that went on to be named reserve grand champion. CSF 122L Creek 203R ET is sired by Remitall Online 122L.
In 2005 HAWK KO Enuff Faith 0506 won her division at the NAILE; this year she claimed the grand champion female title. Faith is owned by National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) member Karlee Osborne, Sheridan, Ill., and sired by CH Enuff Prophet 2913.
In the reserve spotlight was Purple Cruella 14S ET exhibited by Purple Reign Cattle Co., Toulon, Ill. The BR Moler ET daughter also won the Keystone International Livestock Exposition in October and the junior calf division at the American Royal. This reserve female was one of the reasons Purple Reign Cattle Co. received the premier exhibitor title.
At the conclusion of the show, DeShazer Cattle Co., Hearne, Texas, stepped into the winner’s circle and claimed purple banners for premier breeder as well as best six head and champion get of sire with a group sired by H 8E Embracer 8006.
On Nov. 12, 94 heifers competed for grand and reserve honors in the junior show. Kyle Colyer, Bruneau, Idaho, judged the junior entries.
