A large thanks goes out to our speakers for the June 28th cookout/meeting. 
Thank you Dave Wilcox, Kent Feeds, Mike Fell, Agri-King and Reid Blossom with the IBA.  We appreciate you all taking the time to
 attend our meeting and share some great information with our members!

Also during the summer meeting we learned of a goverment program that beef producers can utilize that has to do with the 2012 drought.
  Below are the details to follow

During the summer of 2012 we all experienced high feed cost due to the drought. I have learned that there is a program done thru the USDA FSA office that will help recoup some of the cost from 2012.
