Happy Canadian Ag Day 🌾

A tip of the hat to all of our hard working farmers, ranchers and agricultural producers who work hand in hand to help us live this life that we love.

Thank a farmer, rancher and producer today and everyday as without them we would not have the food on our tables or the animals to compete in our sport with. For many of us the western, ranching and farming lifestyles come together as one - we are so thankful for how agriculture brings us together!
