Field Day at Rand Angus Farm
MILTON, Ky. (November 2005) Trimble County
farmer Reggie Rand took center stage Oct. 4 during a unique multi-county
Farm Field Day, held at his 220-acre farm at 1625 Milton-Bedford Rd.
in Milton, Ky. The event, sponsored by Bagdad Roller Mills of Shelbyville
and the Shelby, Trimble and Henry County Cattlemens Association
and Extension Services, drew an estimated crowd of nearly 300 people.
Guests from Trimble, Carroll, Henry, Shelby and Oldham
counties were treated to wagon tours of Rands Angus Farm and a
meal highlighted by ribeye steaks grilled by the Henry County Cattlemens
Association. Rand was selected by Bagdad Roller Mills to play host to
the event after experiencing success using a new limitor feed
on his cattle that is being marketed by the company.
Rand also used the occasion to announce the upcoming sale
of his entire registered Angus herd. The sale of his 138 registered
livestock will include a 2,500-pound prized bull. Rand says the work
of buying, selling and keeping up the paperwork of the registered stock
has become too much work to do on his own and at his age. The sale is
scheduled for 1 p.m. on Feb. 19 at United Producers Stockyards in Owenton,
