It is with sadness that the OHA announces the passing of Dr. Robert Watson of Cavan, ON and formerly of Lindsay. Dr Watson raised Polled Herefords and Belgian Horses at Cross Creeks Farm. He served on the boards of the Canadian Hereford Association ,the OHA and the ECOHZ ( where he was president in 1975 and 1976). He was a pioneer in the formation of the Canadian Junior Hereford Association and was honoured to be recognized for this at Bonanza in Lindsay in 2014. Dr Watson was a friend and mentor to many in the Hereford breed and he will be dearly missed. The OHA extends our deepest sympathy to Margaret-Jean and the Watson family.

Glenna is very excited and enthused, and will be coming to the Royal Thursday as well as Saturday to get an introduction to the OHA and to meet as many people as she can.
Looking forward to a great Royal!

Lucky lady #7, comes to us from CharSha Farm.
Charsha Flora has been a great addition to our show string this year. She is s powerful female but still is feminine, long and smooth throughout. This is the type of heifer we want to keep on our farm, but we wanted to give someone the opportunity to have this amazing animal.
