A) John Kugler, speaking for the Promotion Committee, reported that work is progressing on the formation of a Junior British White Cattle Association. He and his team are planning to consult established bylaws of other Jr. Cattle Associations as a template for developing one of our own.
B) The Board passed a motion to change the location of our Annual Meeting from Kansas City to Purcell, Oklahoma, at the McClain County Expo on the weekend of October 2, 3 and 4. We plan to have the meeting in conjunction with a BWCAA cattle show which would also involve the youth. More information, such as the cattle showing, meals and accommodations will be coming soon, so everyone can start planning for this.
We want to especially thank Vicki Van Horn and her tireless energy in tackling the enormity of an event such as this and making it happen. Thanks, Vicki. It’s going to be a great weekend!
