Bulletin July 2014


On the front page of this month’s newsletter, you will notice that this edition marks the start of a new volume (number 32). I have prepared each and every one of those since the beginning and have never missed one month!!! The Department of Agriculture supported this newsletter since day one and they continue to do so through printing and mailing; we are VERY fortunate to have this support. It is safe to say few, if any, poultry clubs have a monthly newsletter paid for by the Department of Agriculture.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting with a number of members as I conducted the spring ILT program. Thank you to those who made time to accommodate my visits.
