If you're going to be in central Indiana, give us a shout, we'd love to have you stop. Battle Ground is located approximately 1 hour north of Indianapolis or 10 miles northeast of Lafayette, In.
Battle Ground is a historic site where the last major Indian battle in the Northwest Territory occurred. The forces of the Indian brothers Tecumseh and The Prophet were defeated by Wm. Henry Harrison and his troops in 1811. Battle Ground does not have any stoplights, but there is a conscientious town marshal.
For any 'mature' visitors...we are located across the road from where the VanNatta Hereford Ranch was located. Jack VanNatta was a AHA president and called on to judge Herefords nationally and internationally. In the first half of the 1900's VanNatta's showed Herefords nation-wide. Jack was instrumental in getting us started in the Hereford business in the 1940's. The VanNatta show barn was torn down about 5 years ago and is now a corn field. One of the main pastures is now a country club golf course. Progress?
Speaking of history, I just uncovered pictures of the last [only] time I was at the Denver show. I had 5 head there in 1961 when I was working for the Patterson Land Co. of Bismarck and Wing, N. Dak. I intend to repeat this trip at least once every 50 years. :-)
P.S. Made this goal: we had two bull calves in Denver, January 2011. Thanks to Rusty Miller Family and Bruce Thomas Family for helping make this possible!! Will take a look at the 2061 show as this date gets closer.
