International Texas Longhorn Association
From ITLA President Mike Tomey 


Hello All, 

Harvest is starting and fall is looking pretty good. Jamie and I have been to Wyoming State Fair, Twin Falls County Fair in Filer, Idaho, and York, Pennsylvania to judge shows. There has been a lot of interest at the Twin Falls show. We are excited about several 4-H clubs around the area wanting to show Longhorns at their fair. Shadow and Bonnie Seaman and Cody Campbell did a great job with getting the youth involved in showing the Longhorns. We had a great time in Twin Falls and are excited that they are promoting the Longhorns and bringing so many youth into showing.

We were at the York County Fair this past weekend and enjoyed visiting with all the breeders that showed. We enjoyed meeting a few new breeders and visiting with old friends. Jodi King and her family did a good job organizing the show and promoting it. 

The office is buzzing with activities trying to get all the last-minute prizes and awards to be given out at the Championship Show. We are excited to be putting on the first ever International All Star Futurity and having the Elite Heifer Sale again this year.  We have about 20 excellent heifers that were donated by some very generous donors.  We have youth activities, seminars, the Championship Show, Convention, silent auction, showmanship class, a seminar on a reenactment of the west, Barry Ward will be performing on Friday evening, and our own Marlene Reynolds is going to sing on Thursday evening. 

We have lots more planned to make this the best Championship/Convention ever. Please get your entries in as soon as possible as the deadline is getting near, October 1, 2017. The heifer donation paperwork needs to be in now, so we can get the book done. If you would like to advertise in the show book, please call the ITLA office at 254-898-0157 and let them know as soon as possible to get it in the book.

We would like to congratulate Madeline McGuire (left) for her promotion in the ITLA office and we would like to welcome our new employee, Tanya Clayton (right). If you have any questions on the convention or show, call them and they will help you. 

If you have any ideas or concerns, please call me at 812-583-4622. 
Please get those entries in and let's fill the barn up!
 
Thank you,
Mike Tomey
ITLA President

Mike judging a show in the Wyoming State Fair

Mike talking with the organizers of the Idaho County Fair before the show too determine how they want the show to run. Shadow Seaman is the President of the ITLA affiliate out there in Twin Falls, his wife Bonnie is the coordinator of the Twin Falls fair, they are doing a great job getting the youth involved in Longhorns. 

Mike talking with an FFA member about his steer. This is the first time the gentleman has shown a Longhorn and he did a great job for his first time. This was the first time the FFA and the 4-H club has showed Longhorns at the fair. It was nice to see so many youth interested in showing Longhorns. When the show was over, there were several other counties there watching the show and said they would try to get their county to show Longhorns for next year.  

After judging the 4-H part of the show, Mike took a little time to teach a class in showmanship and before the regular ITLA show. It was first timers for a lot of the kids and Mike wanted to give them pointers on how to show and give them a little encouragement. When it came to the regular ITLA show, they paid attention to him and did very well for showing. Some calves didn't cooperate but the kids did excellent on handling them. Mike was very encouraged at the excitement of the youth and we see this as the future of ITLA. We are happy to see everyone encouraging the youth to get involved.
