7420 Bårarps Miss Firefly ET 3rd place in the European Championships!

Our heifer placed 3rd from Hereford females from 22 countries! Given the hard competition and the fact that she'd just turned 1 year old when the photo was taken, this was a very unexpected surprise!
Huge thanks to PJ Budler, Herefordbreeder.net and the judges, Lance Leachman (Canada), Jean-Pierre  Martins Machado (Brazil), Alistair & Eileen McWilliam (New Zealand) and Rosalish Goulding (Ireland). 

Miranda elected onto the board of the Swedish Angus Association!

It's a great honour for me to announce that I have been elected onto the board of the Swedish Angus Association. I'd been asked earlier, but refused due to my position with the Hereford Association, but I left this year after 15 years, so when the Angus association approached me about joining them again, I just couldn't refuse. Angus need to increace in popularity in Sweden to produce quality livestock for cross breeding with Hereford to increase the quality of beef in this country. Both breeds are equally important in my point of view. I will certainly do the best I can to take the breed forward here.
