Cattle Accomplishments
As members of the Central Alberta and Northern Alberta Hereford Clubs, we participate in the annual field days hosted by the clubs during the summer. Living in the Northern Alberta area, Leonard has been on the NAHC board since 1995, and is currently the club treasurer. Breton West has also been contributing to the Supremacy Sale held by the CAHC since its inception in 1992. In the winter, we exhibit at Farmfair International in Edmonton, Alberta along with the Rimbey and Camrose bull congresses.

The Breton West breeding program has been fortunate to have produced cattle that were popular in the ring with very limited showing. Following are some of the highlights in recent years.

This year is Leonard's 23rd calf crop. In 1982 at age 11, Leonard broke into the registered Hereford cattle world, when he purchased two yearling heifers from Tom and Gertie Hawkwood. Those heifers were bred to his parents bulls and produced 1R and 2R in 1983 - now in 2005, we are back to the R tattoo letters again!
