ITLA Championship Convention and Show
DCC Ranch e-News #151 - 10-20-31
by Darol Dickinson
They are off. Entries for the ITLA Championship show and Futurity departed, Oct 23, to Enid, OK. Iron On (measured T2T 85 5/8" age 4) and Full Pack had plenty of room with the big new trailer of Dwayne and Megan Dinsmore's. The DCC crew will be coming right behind you -- if a wheel falls off.
When Full Pack and her calf arrived, they were a little road-dirty. Kara Dickinson takes Full Pack for a walk around and a bath before the show.
During the 3 dinning experiences, music was cheerfully provided by the Parker/Dowling Symphony Orchestra of country and gospel music - perfect for the Longhorn crowd.
With great food was interesting cowmen. T. J. Farnsworth from Utah standing just under 7 foot tall and ITLA past president Gary Bruch of Kansas. Rumor is that Gary is 4' 18" tall wearing size 10 E boots, T. J. supposedly with size 16 A boots. Please note chef?
Judge John Oliver of Texas selected as All Age Grand Champion Non Halter cow the DCC entry Iron On by Drag iron. Behind her is Full Pack who competed as Champion Jr Cow but could not best her older trailer mate for the big award.
Full Pack, age 2, won her class, Champion Jr Cow Non Halter and the ITLA Futurity. The All Star Futurity is an invitation only for futurity 1st place winners for a final best of the best. Full Pack won this best of the best final futurity.
During the ITLA convention every elected official attended and supported the event. It was a wonderful opportunity for every member to visit with their elected officials and make suggestions for a better association. The BOD kindly welcomed all ideas.
The new ITLA elected president is Larry P Smith. Larry and Heatherly showed Tibina, by Tibbs, to Jr Female Halter Champion. The President is an executive, a life-long cowman, and successful as a competitor. ITLA is the only association that allows every member to not only vote but nominate every candidate for all levels of leadership. Great organization.
Now Iron On is back in Ohio at Dickinson Cattle Co, comfortable in the pasture. The All Age Grand Champion 2018 ITLA Female.
Full Pack and her daughter are back to being normal cattle at DCC. She won 4 judged events with 11 different judges. Great cattle are worth the price -- a joy to own.
The Championship show is over -- it is a wrap. People are home relaxing. What a great annual event!!
