Yesterday Braden had the honor of receiving a calf thru the Olson Livestock exchange program. The program was started over 50 years ago by the Olson family in Buffalo, SD to help young kids start their own cattle herd. In the first year, the Olson family gave 10 kids each one heifer calf with the stipulation that 2 years later they would have to give a heifer calf back to the program. In doing so those 10 kids would provide calves for 10 more kids and the program could continue year after year.
Pictured here are all of this year’s recipients (front row) and all of this year’s donors. Braden feels very honored to be a part of such a neat program!
