Cattlemen news

By Linda Sontchi

The state convention was held August 7-10 at the Fort Smith Convention Center. If you weren’t there you missed a great trade show, good food and information from guest speakers. Over $40,000 in scholarships were given out to deserving students over the weekend.There could still be money available, so contact any member.

The next meeting will be a picnic the last day of the fair, September 13. Tom White will be cooking. A time has not been set, but around 2 p.m. We will announce it later. It is a good time to be a cattle farmer, so come join us. There is strength in numbers and we need you. Members in South Franklin County are encouraged to attend.
