If you weren't able to attend the HHCA annual membership meeting on Sat., March 2nd, you certainly missed a great experience. There were over 70 people attending the luncheon reception and the annual meeting. Mark Green from the USDA NCRS presented to the members about the different techniques of fencing. Everyone learned something that was helpful to their situation of fencing on the farm.
The noon reception luncheon was really a hit, there were eight Highland beef entrees there for everyone to enjoy, plus numerous other foods that were brought for the luncheon. Thank you to all the members who brought food, it was all so delicious. The election at the annual meeting brought a new HHCA President, Greg Roberts of Marionville, MO and a new Vice-President, Jerry Delcour of Crane, MO and two new Board of Directors, Christine Batz of Sac City, IA and Jacque Hawkins of Deer, AR. The 2014 HHCA calendar was showcased and the winner of the front cover was Carpenter Diversified Farms. Board Member Glenn Young presented the new HHCA logo to the membership and it was well received. Jerry Delcour spoke on the second upcoming Highland Cattle Auction on Thursday, April 18th at the Norwood Sale Barn. At the evening banquet, the Lee Wolfgang Promotional & Educational Award was presented to Tom and Theresa Thompson for their years of dedication to the HHCA and the Highland Breed.
Already looking ahead to next year's HHCA meeting scheduled for Saturday, March 1, 2014.
