On July 28, 2018, Davidson Gelbvieh and Lonesome Dove Ranch hosted a Customer Appreciation Day and Cattle Tour at their ranches southwest of Ponteix, SK. They were honoured to host tour participants from across Canada and the United States, as well as right close to home too. Friends, customers, neighbours, and family enjoyed a cow-focused afternoon of viewing purebred Gelbvieh pairs which the round up crews had gathered nicely in each pasture. After touring several pastures, the day was rounded out with a beef supper, hospitality, and visiting at the sale barn.

Twin View Livestock hosted the Man/SK Gelbvieh Field Day on August 4. Aaron and Joe were proud to host over 120 people for a great day at their home located near Parkbeg, SK. Guests came from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and North Dakota. It was a great day for all with overcast conditions and a much needed shower of rain late in the day. Pens of cattle including cows with heifer calves, cows with bull calves and bred heifers were on display.
