Charlie Arbaugh of Alderson West Va  passed very suddenly the other day.Over the past couple years  Me and Gargan kept trying to get ahold of him to come see whats up but he just didnt have a voice mail. Then Id see him at West Va State Fair and he was the same old friendly cordial person.Alot of people probably have never heard of him but he had a really good herd of home bred cattle They are not the typical hardoing skin and bones dairy rats that sometimes come to mind RE old herds back here.-And when he could afford to go-Hed show up at Louisville out of nowhere and stand second in class to the big operators. He was a really good guy and everybody liked him.He also produced some really good 4H calves etc. The first time I went down and visited him was in 1991-And he had an impressive Dividend son from Herman Purdy of Penn State U- I think Martindell used him  later.So he strived for quality for years. The way his cattle are bred and maintain themselves-they would be very useful to a show oriented outfit that also wants cows.That maybe has Red Reward-Hotcommidy etc  e genetics-as they are a long mixture of Irish to  clubby to Canadian to whats new. RIP buddy O0

Very well said and deserved.

I looked over a couple of pedigrees-and found 8 year old cows that WERE ALMOST  ENTIRELY his breeding-going back close to 50 years-or when he was 15 years old-He used alot of good bulls-And got Trump the first time it was available around 93-94-Along with the Alta cedar Signature "Tank" bull, Double Vision,Ace of Diamonds,Deertrail Awesome back in the day,3W Payoff, Dividend, Guiness Before that G-9, Great White Hope, 2975, etc-but always maintained a balance-because the cattle are run strictly commercial. I am going to volunteer to help sell the cattle if his family wishes-They will work purebred or commercial. Earlier this year I helped brad Davis sell around 35-40 here and there-so I know the drill.
