Did you miss the camaraderie and good times last October in Springfield? This weekend is not just a Highland cattle show. Members and friends travel to see the fine array of cattle and to assess the Highlands on display and those at home in the pasture and to meet and greet NEHCA members. There is no finer place to enjoy “cow talk” and life on the farm than with the folks gathered in the Mallory Arena, October 14 – 17, 2004. It is a wonderful opportunity to sit in the stands and learn from the judge, to help hand out ribbons or programs and visit with Highland owners, the friendliest cattle people around.
If you belong to NECA and have not been to a Highland show, it is time to attend the 2004 Fall Gathering & Show. The option of bringing cattle is yours to make.

Friday, October 15 arrivals / cattle prep
4:00 PM Junior Show
6:30 PM Pizza party in the barn

10:00 AM Open Show
6:30 PM Cocktails / Silent Auction / Banquet
