Board Commentary
The year 2017 will definitely be one to remember for many reasons, but certainly one reason is because of the many natural disasters that we’ve experienced in America. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have left paths of destruction all over the world, especially in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and Puerto Rico. - On page 6

Member Services Update
Spring Herd Inventory Evaluation If you have cows that are classified as Spring Herd Inventory, make sure that these females are still on your active inventory.
