The Bolduc family out of the M.D. of Willow Creek was another local recipient of a BMO Farm Family Award Monday, July 10, at the Calgary Stampede.

Dyce Bolduc says being part of the M.D. is in their blood.

"My grandfather actually exhibited the champion swine at the Claresholm and District Fair in 1914. So, they would have lived in Viking at that time. Purebred livestock have been a part of our family for a long time, as we've raised Angus in the M.D. for 50 years."

Both Dyce and his Brother David are former Presidents of the Canadian Angus Association.
