Spring Trip Plans Move Forward
March 30, 2012
Members of the American Sheep Industry Association’s (ASI) Legislative Action Council, along with member-state sheep association leaders, will be in Washington, D.C., May 1-3. Is your state going to be represented?
The purpose of the visit is to bring the message of the sheep industry to the nation’s capitol and coordinate updates on wool, lamb, trade, sheep disease and protection programs with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Visits with federal policy makers regarding legislation and meetings with agriculture and land management agencies about programs that affect the business of sheep producers in this country are being planned.
Producers interested in participating in this event should contact their state association or Peter Orwick at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10.
