Salute to Bruce Milliken’s support of 4-H over the years

Posted on June 12, 2019 by Taber Times

It is an exciting moment to sell the Grand Champion calf at the Taber and District 4-H Show & Sale. As the animal entered the ring, it very quickly sold for $7.25/lb!

Mr. Perlich began to thank the buyers of Rocky Mountain Equipment, Western Tractor, Summit Motors, Palliser Sales and Robertson Implements, and when Mr. Perlich’s booming voice started to quiver, the building became very quiet and he continued.

“But above all, we thank Bruce Milliken as they are honouring him today with the purchase of this calf. And at this point, these gentlemen, I think we should take our hats off to them and to Milliken Farm Supply that touched a lot of your hearts and mine too. Would you stand with me for a moment of silence for our good friend Mr. Bruce Milliken.”

Thank-you to Milliken Farm Supply for supporting 4-H for so many years, and to the businesses and families who support 4-H today.

And a special thank-you to the gentlemen who purchased, and tried to purchase Chase’s Grand Champion calf.
