Field Day Update

For Immediate Release

This message is to inform you that due to the uncertainty of travel and other issues related to the effects of Covid 19, this years South Poll Grass Cattle Field Day and Auction set for June 26 and 27th  has been cancelled.  This decision did not come lightly, and the Association took a lot of things into consideration before coming to this difficult decision. We were all looking forward to spending time with you all and it saddens us to have to do this, but we have to keep everyone’s safety at the forefront.

We are looking at the possibility of having some sort of ‘abbreviated’ event this fall that may include a sale, but we are still very much in the discussion phase of this.  We hope to have an announcement made by July 1, so that everyone has time to plan.

We will be making refunds immediately to anyone who requests them, or we can hold the registration fees until we see what the possibility of a Fall event is.  Please let Ann in the office know what you would prefer.  

Please watch our website and our social media pages for any further updates.  We hope that this finds you all well, and safe.  If you have any questions, concerns or anything else you would like to discuss, please contact the SPGCA office at 256-996-8355 or email southpollgrasscattle@gmail.com

 

Thank you and be well everyone!

MISSION STATEMENT

To promote gentle South Poll Cattle as the premier heat-tolerant maternal breed for the efficient conversion of  grass to tender beef.

South Polls are bred to be slick-haired, small-framed cows with emphasis placed on high fertility, longevity, and calm disposition.  South Polls are bred to excel on a grass based grazing system.  Ultrasound and actual carcass data on the South Poll tells us that they are as tender, or more tender, than straight bred English cattle.
