Carload Bull Show
We have taken a carload of Bulls out to the National Western Stock Show for decades, beginning with John’s grandad Theodore Ridder in the 1940’s, then his Dad Paul for the next few decades, and then John’s carloads since the 1970’s.
The carload show was, and remains, a unique show in the world of livestock. In recent years we’ve shown 10 head of spring yearling bulls to lookers and buyers from across the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America and beyond. Originally the yearling show consisted of 15 head.
This was a great way to showcase our herd’s improvement, to market our new bloodlines to customers and potential customers, and to see what is happening in the Hereford breed up close.
