Last January 25th, Jay received a call from 4-H Leader, and Simmental

Breeder, Dallas McLean. Their 4-H club banquet was that evening, and

their members and indeed the whole community was reeling from the

sudden passing of a 4-H mom at the young age of 40. The 4-H members

had approached Danny Blain fromEagle-Ridge Simmentals who favorably

responded to their request to donate a heifer that could be sold at their

banquet and the funds donated to the grieving family. Dallas was look-

ing for assistance to get the word out to anyone that Transcon thought

may be interested.

Jay was immediately on the phone contacting breeders, and a posting

was put onto the TLC Facebook page. Four hours later, as he walked

into the 4-H banquet, Jay was still receiving calls and texts from fellow

Simmental breeders throughout Canada who wanted to help in any way

they could. The heifer was purchased for a total of $4500 that evening.

The generous purchasers were:

Starwest Farms, Chilliwack BC

Beechinor Bros. Simmentals, Bentley, AB

Langer Fleckvieh Simmentals, Edson, AB

Wolfe’s Fleckvieh, Sundre, AB

Silver Lake Simmentals, Cartwright, MB

Eagle Ridge Annessa, was affectionately renamed “Charity” within our

office. We wish to acknowledge Eagle Ridge Simmentals for their donation

of the heifer, Beechinor Bros. Simmentals who graciously offered to supply

the heifer with a home, have her bred, and prepare her for National Trust

“On Ice”, and the compassionate “syndicate” of breeders who stepped

forward to assist in a time of need. Eagle Ridge Annessa is now for offer

again, this time to benefit STARS Air Ambulance. Your generous support

to this worthwhile cause is sincerely appreciated.
