OCTOBER 5, 2016 REGULAR MONTHLY MEETING
Same place Same time, Extension Office, 7 pm
Happy Autumn to everyone.
 Our Oct. meeting will be of great importance to anyone that owns cattle or horses. The WA. State Brand Dept. is proposing several changes to the way the Dept. operates. The bottom line is , it is going to make a considerable difference in what it will cost you in your operation .These proposals will go before the Legislators in January and a representative from the Brand Dept. will be at our meeting to explain them to us. Folks this may very well happen and don’t think for one minute that it won’t affect all of us, no matter how many head of animals we own.
  The fair was successful again this year , we acquired several new members and look forward to working with everyone.
  A big thank you to everyone that helped setup , attend the booth , and take down the display. Thank you Bill D. for getting banners to the printer.
