Here we are into the month of July. As you will notice at the top of page one of the newsletter, this is number 1 of volume 30! Wow. I cannot imagine that it has been that long.
I have finished up the ILT work for the spring. Thank you to those who made themselves available for me to visit and vaccinate their flocks.
The fair season is almost ready to begin. This is the time of year that I really enjoy. Let’s hope that it is a successful summer for the shows. See you there!
