Cattlemen’s Classic organizes benefit for Dethlefs family

The Nebraska Angus Association, along with the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic, has organized a benefit auction for the Craig and Laurie Dethlefs family. A special feature will be sold at the beginning of Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic Angus Sale. This will be a fancy January heifer offered with a package of five units of Summitcrest Focus 2 UCC to be sold with this heifer.

This Classic Sale offering is donated by Ostrand Angus, with all proceeds going to benefit the Dethlefs. Don’t miss this special Angus Sale feature at the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic on Thursday, Feb. 20, in Kearney.

It is our intention to gather funds through members’ contributions. Those funds, as a whole, will then be utilized to bid, purchase, or contribute to the sale. If the bid is won, the heifer will be donated back for resale. Nebraska Angus Association members who wish to pledge funds towards the purchase of this heifer to benefit the Dethlefs Family are urged to contact Nebraska Angus Association Vice President Trevor Lienemann or North Director Dave Nichols by Wednesday Feb. 19. You can contact them by email, phone call, text message or any other method to reach them.

Reach Dave Nichols at 402-340-3810 at, 47976 853rd Rd, Chambers, NE 68725.
