Carnation Historical Events

Thanks for my Childhood in Carnation!
Ever wonder what happens to children who live in farming communities? One moved to Northern Minnesota, brought a legend to life , and created a new breed of beef cattle... Diarmid cattle are the lowest cholesterol beef in the world 23.4 to 30 mg/100gms. 4-h and making the best better are life long term goals. Resurrector is known as the Babe. the only bull to become supreme champion of all beef breeds at the beltrami county fair which is a scottich highland. His offspring have been the only 4-H animals to qualify to Minnesota state fair '93-96. I learned good things and have spent a life doing what made me feel good.... Carnation and tolt demons... heaven on earth. Enjoy these pictures
