Boulder County Fair 2017
2017 was another successful year for the Boulder County Fair Highland Cattle Show. This year the stalls were filled beyond capacity with one of the best attended BCF shows in recent history.
Over the last few years, the MSCHA board made improving the Boulder County Fair show and the MSHCA juniors program a priority.
This year we had an amazing group of MSHCA Junior competitors at the 2017 Boulder County Fair Scottish Highland Show. Congrats to our MSHCA Incentive Fund Jackpot Bonus winners total payout for Boulder was $1000 ...1st Place and $400 Courtney Hutson ...2nd Place and $200 Emily Clarke ...a tie for 2nd Place and $200 Eric DeLuke ...3rd Place and $100 Maryn Cowell ...a tie for 3rd Place and $100 Logan DeLuke . These Juniors are also qualified now to win $ at the 2018 National Western Stock Show through the program. Our juniors brought in and amazing $1,215 in sponsorship.
MSHCA is especially proud of the efforts of this junior group in representing the breed and their animals. MSHCA also appreciates the commitment from those who traveled significantly long distances to exhibit and compete.
Coincident with the show is the Boulder County Fair offering many attractions and rides. Additionally, on Saturday is the Longmont Farmers Market, this is an awesome opportunity to mingle with the locals, pick up locally grown produce (including Highland beef) and even pick up some Colorado western slope peaches.
The Boulder County Fair Highland Cattle show is conducted in a relaxed, laid back atmosphere. The show is competitive but conducted in a friendly and family like environment with plenty willing to offer assistance and advice. If you have any interest in showing, learning to show your cattle or just 'hanging out' with fellow Highland breeders consider putting the 2018 Boulder County Fair on your schedule.
This year sees the return of the Mountain States Highland Cattle Association's Junior incentive program. The objective is to encourage and support junior participation in raising, breeding, exhibiting and improving the breed.
Details about the program will be out soon...
