           Here we go. Another year has rolled around and the scramble is on. We’re super busy but all in all
           things around here are going well. I know in various areas of the country weather has played havoc but
           so far this year we have been graced. I do not recall a summer like this that so far has provided timely
           and adequate rain yet spared us the sweltering heat that usually hangs around throughout August.

           The volatile markets have gradually increased the market prices for all classes of cattle and for this
           we also give thanks- we are keeping our fingers crossed and are hopeful for continued progress in all
           segments. The recent trade announcements with China and others should bode well for our industry in
           the upcoming years. That being said we cannot rest on our laurels and must seek to move forward with
           improvements both genetically and market availability to stay viable.

           Everyone in this sale strives to improve their herds on a daily basis so the product offered is of value
           and wanted in the current marketplace. This has been accomplished by using top herd  and quality
           AI sires. At Stone Ridge Manor we have over the years continued to add what we believe to be breed
           improving genetics. This tradition continues with the addition of Red Power to our bull battery. Hav-
           ing had a crop that included his progeny this year we made the decision to hitch our wagon to what we
           believe to be the best cutting edge genetics available. Genetics that will benefit both ourselves and our
           customers in years to come.

           Along with that information I am pleased to say that this year we will again be offering one half the sale
           proceeds from two different lots going to to the Disabled Veterans of America and the Hoffman Home
           for Youth. If possible please help out these helping hand organizations.

           Please join us Friday evening for a preview of the sale offering and the fellowship that ensues. Satur-
           day at noon we will sell a quality group of cattle and I sincerely hope you can join us then. If you need
           lodging Friday evening please make arrangements as soon as it suits since the Gettysburg area is quite
           the tourist destination this time of the year.
