This past Friday Superior auctioned off a saddle to benefit Kris Wilson. We are happy to announce that $31,100 was raised. Kris and Cara Wilson live on the Silver Spur -- Bell Ranch Division with their son Grady (4) and daughter Josey (18 mos.). Cara is the daughter of Superior Livestock Rep. Jerry Armstrong and wife Jean of Holyoke, CO. Kris was diagnosed with kidney cancer last year and had his kidney removed. In April 2014, they learned that the cancer had metastasized to his lungs, bone and lymph nodes. They are currently seeking aggressive treatment options. You can still donate- it's never too late.
Please go to this website to donate whatever you can to help this young family in their time of need. Click here

Today’s consumers want to know more about how their food is raised. The beef checkoff-funded Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program can be a positive influence in sharing information with consumers, as it provides research, training and certification that help farmers, ranchers and their employees provide the best care for their cattle. And, thanks to a partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI), BQA certification is FREE from Sept.1 through Oct. 31.
More than 11,000 producers have taken advantage of the offer, which demonstrates the industry’s commitment to quality and to producing the best beef possible. BQA is simply the right thing to do.
BQA is also a great tool for training employees on proper animal care and handling on the farm or ranch. The cost of BQA certification is normally $25 to $50; however, from Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. will cover the cost for the certification or recertification.
In the most comprehensive study about the Return on Investment (ROI) of the beef checkoff, Dr. Harry Kaiser of Cornell University concludes that each dollar invested in the Beef Checkoff Program between 2006 and 2013 returned about $11.20 to the beef industry.
“The news for beef checkoff investors couldn’t be better,” said Kaiser, who has performed similar analyses for other checkoff programs. “It is clear to me that activities funded through the checkoff have a substantial impact on beef demand, and the return on producers’ and importers’ investments into this program is vastly greater than the cost of the program.”
“This really tells us that we’re on the right track with how we plan our checkoff programs,” said cattleman Ted Greidanus of California, who chairs the checkoff’s Evaluation Committee that commissioned the ROI study. “We are accountable to beef producers and importers who fund the work we do with checkoff dollars, and I must say that I am quite pleased at how good the news really is.
