After over 40 years of working with Transcon Livestock, it was a sad moment when Bob informed us of his decision to retire from sales management. 
His notification also reminded us of many good thoughts and feelings of appreciation to have had his professionalism and friendship for so many years.

During Transcon’s National Trust On-Ice sale held on Dec. 20th in Red Deer, we took the opportunity to show appreciation to Bob Wilson for his years of service to Transcon Livestock, and his invaluable input to marketing Simmental cattle.

Jay Good commented on Bob’s contributions to the company spanning over 4 decades; his years of dedication, loyalty, and his unquestionable integrity that helped create the business structure which exists at TLC today.

Transcon staff had selected a Mantle clock for Bob, inscribed as follows:
Thanks for all the years of team-work and dedication.  You are an inspiration to all of us.
Thank you for challenging us all to become better at what we do.
Congratulations on your retirement.

Don Lundberg and Dale Storebo, representing the S.S.B.A. presented Bob with a beautiful bronze statue and commented on their long term friendship and respect for Bob.

Breeders from throughout Canada came to congratulate Bob on his retirement.  There were a lot of stories and laughter shared that evening showing respect to Bob for the impact he made on all of us and the Simmental industry.

Best Wishes on your retirement Bob!
