The American Sheep Industry Association (ASI)/National Lamb Feeders Association (NLFA) Convention is just over a week away. Registrations are tracking equal to those of the last few years so a large crowd is expected.
Meeting Agendas. Agendas for the meetings have been uploaded to the ASI website for viewing. For help determining which sessions you might wish to attend, go to www.sheepusa.org/Meeting_Agendas to review the agendas. Agendas from NLFA, the American Lamb Board, the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center and the American Goat Federation are also posted.
Pelt Educational Tour. For those planning to attend the pelt educational tour, Mike Wheeler with The Nugget Company recommends that participants wear rubber-soled, water-resistant shoes since part of the tour will take place in the production area. Also, guests will be required to climb one set of stairs during the tour. The outline for this tour is available on the ASI website.
