Another year and another successful four days at the All Breeds Show in Bashaw.
Hosted by the Bashaw Agricultural Show Committee Aug. 14 to 17, the competition is not only about seeing who has been judged the best, but about making the young people that are part of it better themselves. This includes several National Young Cattlemen training events and a cow camp.
The ultimate prize, the UFA Supreme Quest champion, went to Stettler’s Levi Martin and his cow Sunny. The pairing also walked home with the champion commercial title.
Martin said he was “excited” to win. Sunny is a two-year-old heifer so he’d been working towards this for two years. This was his first time competing in the UFA Youth Supreme Quest.
Martin, 14, was also awarded the 2019 Jaron Arntzen memorial award. Martin was in the running for this award for the last three years, but the family figured he had plenty of time to win it, and he is still the youngest recipient ever of the remembrance award.
He was awarded this year by an unanimous vote from the Arntzen family.
Other results include: Jacey Massey and New Trend Class Act as champion purebred; Brynne Yoder and Red Cinder Freyja as open female champion; Scarlett Fowler and Miss Prairie Cove as pee wee champion; Rex Curtis and George as pee wee bull calf champion; Ericka Mathon and Red Rack Bonny as pee wee yearling champion;
Massey was also named the senior clipping champion, while Wynton Brandl won the junior title.
Wynton also won the back leg contest by popular vote and the 2019 Junior National Young Cattleman award.
The 2019 Senior National Young Cattleman buckle went to Madison Sibbald.
The triple crown award winners were Halley Adams of Forestburg, with her purebred Greenwood Vixon JJP 17E, Brynne Yoder of Barrhead County, with Red Cinder Holly Dunn 721G, commercial.
These juniors competed in all three shows and went home with buckles.
The Brandl family took home the stall award.
The Elaine Hiller memorial award went to two recipients, Kord Phillips and show mom Gwen Brandl.
Janet Kerr was recognized as the volunteer of the year.
The aggregate winners in all breeds was senior Baxter Blair and junior Wynton Brandl.
