Where’s Our FOCUS This Week? Vol. 19

National shows, memorial shows and county fairs – we’re seeing posts all over social media about how our friends, fans and customers are fairing in these competitions.

We’ve got friends at the National Junior Angus Show in Kansas City and the Simmental National Classic XXXIII in Lincoln, NE. Keep the pictures coming – we love seeing how the shows are going! (Read this article from the Kansas City Star about the NJAS, highlighting youths in animal agriculture.)

In the meantime, we’re making preparations of our own at FMG. This upcoming weekend, all of our staff will be meeting up in Kansas City for our “summer board meetings.” This will be a chance for all of us to prepare for the upcoming fall sale season, work on our photography skills and simply bond as a company. Focus Marketing Group will also have a booth at the upcoming Junior National Hereford Expo, so we’ll set that up too! Make sure you stop by and say hi!

We’ve also got a few sales this week –

This cow sells as Lot 20 in Brian Martin’s sale. We love this footnote – “This is a cool looking blue roan that has the pedigree to raise some cool calves. She is easy on the eyes because she has that look. Don?t forget about your kids birthday! Every kid loves a blue roan and what better present than a good one that will make them money.”
