It doesn’t matter what online sale company, type of sale or location, we have them all! It is a really cool feature. Plus, it’s free! You will also want to check out all of our Show Results from this Summer’s Junior Nationals. We’ve included Simmentals, Angus, Maines, Chis, Shorthorns, Red Angus, Limousin, Charolais and so many more! We’ve also included Faces and Places from Madison, Wisconsin where we were the Official Media Partner of the AJSA National Classic! One of our favorite features in this issue are our Flashback pages where we share with our readers the past Grand and Reserve Champions from the different State Fairs. It is so cool seeing the different champions side by side. A feature that is only found in The Showtimes! We’re getting ready to head out to the State Fairs this August. We can’t wait to see everyone and cover some of our favorite shows of the year! We know what a big deal the State Fairs are and love covering them. We hope you enjoy our August issue.
There is nothing quite like a State Fair. There is something about showing your steer at State Fair that is different from a Spring Jackpot or even a National Show. For my family, there was always more on the line. When you show at most shows, if you lose you just pack up and head on to the next. If you lose your State Fair, it is big deal. Growing up in Colorado, if your steer placed in the top four or five in your class you qualified for the sale and had to sell. You couldn’t just head on to Aksarben or the American Royal if you had to sell. So much goes into raising a steer for State Fair. It takes months of hard work and sacrifice. It is always around 100 degrees, and a stressful time of year. When you win, it is always worth it. Now that my family is done showing steers at the Colorado State Fair, our big project every Summer is working on making our August State Fair Edition the best it can be. Not only is it our biggest issue, it is the one that people talk about. There are more ads, more features and more details than any other issue we work on. We strive to top each previous issue and bring you the latest graphics. We had a lot of fun putting together this issue! Inside you will find all of the latest ads and pasture sales!

NEW LOGO DESIGN FOR THE 2023 AJSA NATIONAL CLASSIC!
We had a great trip to Madison, Wisconsin for the 2022 AJSA National Classic! Not only did we release a new episode of Show Center and interviewed the champion exhibitors, we also were able to sit down and visit with Mary Bloomberg and Jamie Bloomberg-Halfmann about Jim and the impact he made on our industry! Be sure to view all of our Simmental videos on The Showtimes Facebook page! SIMMENTAL SUMMER VIDEOS + INTERVIEWS
Mr. James “Jim” R. Bloomberg, 66 of rural Berwick, passed away Thursday, May 19, 2022, as a result of a farm accident. He was born November 12, 1955 in Kewanee, the son of James and JoAnn (Carlson) Bloomberg. He was raised by his mother and her second husband, John Williams. Jim married Mary E. Ray on December 29, 1984 at the Abingdon Christian Church. He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Mary; his children, Blake (Wravenna) Bloomberg of Secor, Jamie (Cade) Halfmann of Garden City, Texas and Jake Bloomberg of Berwick; his grandchildren, Breckyn Bloomberg, Hayzen Halfmann, Brenhem Bloomberg, Berwick Bloomberg, Bexton Bloomberg and Humble James Halfmann; his siblings, Johnny Williams of Toulon and Gina Williams of Eureka; and his beloved in-laws who were more like parents to him, David and Editha Ray of rural Berwick. He was preceded in death by his parents and father who raised him John Williams, and one brother, Josef Bloomberg. Jim graduated from Normal Community High School and attended Illinois State University. He was a lifelong farmer and cattleman and was a co-owner of Bloomberg Cattle with his family. He was a very active community minded person. Jim was the president of the Abingdon School Board, District 217 for 16 years. He was a member of the Illinois Simmental Board and member of the Illinois Beef Expo committee. He was a wonderful cattleman and was loved and respected by thousands across the industry. He was a renown livestock evaluator, remembered for his honesty, integrity and ability to connect with young people. He was “Mr. Fix It” around the farm and enjoyed mechanics. Most of all, he was the most loving son, husband, father, brother and forever our PaPa Jim.

All families have that one recipe that they hold close to their heart. For my family, that is Grandma’s Spaghetti. It was our go-to for Birthday dinners, special occasions or just for a random night of the week meal that you wanted something satisfying. From the time I was a little girl, I would love to spend time with my Grandma in the kitchen. She taught me so much and inspired my love for cooking. To this day, every time we make Grandma’s Spaghetti it is the best meal in the world!
Laurie Reid with her Grandma Case
INGREDIENTS • 1 Large Onion, Diced • 1 lb Ground Beef • 1-2 Tbsp. Prepared Seasoning (Recipe Below) • 16 oz. Dried Spaghetti • 6 oz. Tomato Paste • Salt & Pepper to Taste
DIRECTIONS Prepare seasoning before you start. Dice a large onion and combine with ground beef in a large skillet. Salt and pepper to taste. And add a couple of teaspoons of prepared seasoning. Cook over medium heat until browned and cooked through (Once cooked leave to the side for later) Meanwhile bring a large 5qt. pot of water to boil following the spaghetti package instructions. Once boiling add one Tablespoon of salt and one Tablespoon of seasoning to boiling water then add the spaghetti. Boil for 7-8 min (the pasta won’t be completely cooked yet) ladle out at least three cups of the boiling water into a bowl or container and leave to the side in case you need in later. Drain out water till it covers the spaghetti in the pot by an inch or two and return to boil. Add the tomato paste and hamburger into the boiling water and continue to cook until the pasta is cooked through (this usually takes a little longer than the package instructions). You can add back the saved water a little at a time if it needs to cover the spaghetti more. You can add more of the spaghetti sauce seasoning to taste. My Grandma would always let this sit on the stove to let the now sauce on the spaghetti to thicken. Serve and enjoy. Makes for my favorite left overs.
SPAGHETTI SAUCE SEASONING • 4 tsp. Spice Islands Basil, Sweet • 1 - 1/2 tsp. Spice Islands Marjoram • 4 1/4 tsp. Spice Islands Onion Powder • 4 tsp. Sugar • 3 1/2 tsp. Salt • 2 1/2 tsp. Spice Islands Garlic Powder • 1 1/2 tsp. Spice Islands Rosemary • 1 1/2 tsp. Spice Islands Pepper, Black Medium Grind • 1 tsp. Spice Islands Summer Savory • 1/2 tsp. Spice Islands Cloves, Ground
Combine all ingredients in a small food processor or coffee grinder until fine (depending on how big your grinder you may have to grind in batches) Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Store in tightly sealed container.

hall of fame
NEW MEMBER AUGUST 2022
Lucy may be the hardest working member of the family. Her work ethic, passion and drive can definitly be seen in her daughters in their success.
“THIS IS A FAMILY THING.”
all success has to be worked for. There is one thing in the Guyer barn that is constantly recited, and that is “this is a family thing.” There is not a time where it is only one of the girls. It is always something that the family does. It is a team effort in their barn, and when it comes to the daily grind, the livestock comes first. Each day looks quite a bit alike. It starts early in the morning bringing cattle in the barn, then right to the pig side to feed and walk pigs, but the day isn’t over until the cattle go back out late at night, and with it being a multispecies barn, they would like to extend
The Guyer Family has been exhibiting livestock for close to 16 years. Dave, Lucy, Ashtin, and Nalaney reside in Robinson, Illinois where their passion for the livestock industry began. This passion was instilled in the girls at a young age, as both Dave and Lucy grew up around livestock. The older the girls got, the more involved they were. They began showing pigs in 2006, and soon found that their hearts were in the pig ring, at least until they began showing cattle. Now, both of the girls have learned the importance of work ethic in the barn, because as most know, nothing is given and
their thanks to Jason and Aaron who will stay back while they are exhibiting all across the country. Just recently the girls exhibited at the Exposition where they were fortunate enough to exhibit the Supreme Overall Gilt. With this being Ashtin’s last year, this win meant a lot to the Guyer family. They said, “there’s nothing quite like sharing something like that
with your family and closest friends who have become like family over the years.” As the girls get older, they have reflected on their time in the show ring, and although there are a few more years that the Guyer’s will be exhibiting they can’t help but thank God for everything that He has blessed them with, because “nothing is impossible through Him.” The win
at Expo is something that they will always cherish as a family. One thing that they would like to pass on to the next generation of exhibitors is to never waiver, and your family will always be your biggest cheerleaders so keep them close and remember to set your goals high, but not out of reach, and keep working for them because they will be achieved. •

A HUGE IMPACT ON THIS INDUSTRY.
ard Brothers Livestock (WB), owned by Jack and Mary Ann Ward, and their two sons, Cameron and Carter, is home to approximately 60 cows, split between spring and summer calvers. Established in 1991, WB began with junior projects for Cameron and Carter, focusing on producing competitive show cattle that grow into useful, productive animals for young showmen, as well as seedstock and commercial producers. That’s the same way Jack’s older brothers — Roger, Jim, Steve and Tommy — established the original WB in the early 1960s. Support from their parents and mentorship by a good family friend, Ken Torr, were pivotal in the program’s success. Mary Ann has a rich history in the cattle business, too. Her grandfather
and great uncle were very successful Hereford breeders in east central Ohio. Her parents, Gary and Shirley, still operate a commercial cowherd on the original Watson Hereford Farm. Gary’s focus continues to be building a cowherd that thrives on the native grasses of east central Ohio, producing top-end feeder calves that demand strong prices in the local market. Jack and Mary Ann were very active in 4-H and FFA. Participation in associated junior activities ignited their passion for the seedstock business. Jack received an associate of science degree from Black Hawk East College in 1984; he was a member of the school’s national champion livestock judging team. He transferred to Purdue University where he received his bachelor of science degree in agricultural economics. Mary Ann attended Ohio State University, which
creates a little household competition during college football and basketball seasons. Jack and Mary Ann married in 1991 and began their own journey in the seedstock business. At the time, Jack was managing Three Rivers Angus, Roanoke, Ind. In 1997, Jack and Mary Ann had the opportunity to become managing partners of Maple Lane Angus, Shipshewanna, Ind. with Keith Lambright and his family. Maple Lane Angus purchased the Three Rivers herd in its entirety, which served as the foundation for the partnership. Jack and Mary Ann both agree their partnership with Keith and his family was special and opened some doors for them to grow and build an incredible seedstock herd. It also enabled Cameron and Carter to start purchasing a few cows. Looking back, there were certainly a couple of cow families that had a tremendous impact on our program’s growth and continue to have an impact in the industry today. Our foundation cow was SVF Forever Lady 1120. Over time, she accounted for more than $1 million in total sales for her owners: Maple Lane Angus, Waldeck Farms and Eaglestone Farms. This cow continues to impact our herd through her son, TRA Forever and Ever 608. Another son out of 1120, Maple Lane Forever Ready, continues to be used in progressive breeding programs. However, the 1120 cow may be most famous for her daughters sired by the legendary AAR New Trend. There were a number of those females, and they are still seen in pedigrees across the industry. Carter successfully showed a daughter of Forever and Ever — an 1120 great granddaughter — during the 2012 show season. In 2003, the Ward Family dispersed the Maple Lane Angus cowherd and moved to Plattsburg, Mo. when Jack accepted the position of chief
operations officer and director of breed improvement for the American Hereford Association. This really brought things full circle as Mary Ann’s family had a long and strong history with the Hereford breed. Plus, Jack’s dad managed Fields Hereford Farm, Battle Ground, Ind., for a number of years in the late 1970s. Bob Fields had purchased the entire Egypt Valley Hereford cowherd, and during this time, Jack worked closely with his dad on the diversified
farming operation. Jack and his sister showed Hereford cattle on the local, state and national levels. Jack participated in the Junior National Hereford Expo showmanship contest in the late 70s when it was at the old Ak-Sar-Ben show grounds in Omaha, Neb. In 2015, the American Hereford Association named Jack its executive vice-president. In 2003, Cameron competed at his first National Junior Angus Show inPage 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14 Page 15 Page 16 Page 17 Page 18 Page 19 Page 20 Page 21 Page 22 Page 23 Page 24 Page 25 Page 26 Page 27 Page 28 Page 29 Page 30 Page 31 Page 32 Page 33 Page 34 Page 35 Page 36 Page 37 Page 38 Page 39 Page 40 Page 41 Page 42 Page 43 Page 44 Page 45 Page 46 Page 47 Page 48 Page 49 Page 50 Page 51 Page 52 Page 53 Page 54 Page 55 Page 56 Page 57 Page 58 Page 59 Page 60 Page 61 Page 62 Page 63 Page 64 Page 65 Page 66 Page 67 Page 68 Page 69 Page 70 Page 71 Page 72 Page 73 Page 74 Page 75 Page 76 Page 77 Page 78 Page 79 Page 80 Page 81 Page 82 Page 83 Page 84 Page 85 Page 86 Page 87 Page 88 Page 89 Page 90 Page 91 Page 92 Page 93 Page 94 Page 95 Page 96 Page 97 Page 98 Page 99 Page 100 Page 101 Page 102 Page 103 Page 104 Page 105 Page 106 Page 107 Page 108 Page 109 Page 110 Page 111 Page 112 Page 113 Page 114 Page 115 Page 116 Page 117 Page 118 Page 119 Page 120 Page 121 Page 122 Page 123 Page 124 Page 125 Page 126 Page 127 Page 128 Page 129 Page 130 Page 131 Page 132 Page 133 Page 134 Page 135 Page 136 Page 137 Page 138 Page 139 Page 140 Page 141 Page 142 Page 143 Page 144 Page 145 Page 146 Page 147 Page 148 Page 149 Page 150 Page 151 Page 152 Page 153 Page 154 Page 155 Page 156 Page 157 Page 158 Page 159 Page 160 Page 161 Page 162 Page 163 Page 164 Page 165 Page 166 Page 167 Page 168 Page 169 Page 170 Page 171 Page 172 Page 173 Page 174 Page 175 Page 176 Page 177 Page 178 Page 179 Page 180 Page 181 Page 182 Page 183 Page 184 Page 185 Page 186 Page 187 Page 188 Page 189 Page 190 Page 191 Page 192 Page 193 Page 194 Page 195 Page 196 Page 197 Page 198 Page 199 Page 200
