American Galloway Breeders Association (AGBA)We learned way back that it's not always in our best interest to chase every fad that rushes by.
We watched the great frame race of the last two decades, and kept our cattle moderate in size and mature weight - even though it was unfashionable to do so.
Then we witnessed the industry push for maximum lean, and questioned how long consumers would buy beef that's too tough, that has no flavor.
And we wondered how long cattle producers could tolerate heavily-muscled open heifers, and bulls that couldn't get the job done when the going got tough.
That's why we breed Galloway.
From our generous hosts of the AGBA 2020 Annual Members' Meeting, Harley and Michelle Blegen: Tentative plan for the Annual Members' Meeting on Saturday, August 8th. Members' Meeting at 10 a.m., eat lunch when done. Directors' Meeting to follow lunch. After noon, tour Toby Dahl's crossbred herd and partial ranch tour. It takes multiple days to see the whole ranch. Toby does timber thinning for fire suppression and forage growth. Come back to Blegen Galloways for supper and socializing. Hotels are Autumns Inn 406-323-1000 and Big Sky Motel 406-323-2303. RSVP would be helpful for meal planning and tour. firstname.lastname@example.org
