The North American Limousin Foundation (NALF) is planning a series of free regional workshops for its members. At each location, NALF staff members will address breed improvement and marketing issues. University personnel will join them at some sites. The workshops are follow-up to the Limousin Visions Symposium, which the association conducted in December 2004.
The scheduled dates and locations follow.
* Nov. 18 – 1 to 5 p.m. – Cronk's Café, Denison, Iowa (in conjunction with the Iowa Limousin Association annual meeting).
* Jan. 27, 2007 – 4 to 6 p.m. – Radisson Hotel North, Forth Worth, Texas (in conjunction with the Texas Limousin Association annual meeting).
NALF also will host a workshop at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn., in conjunction with the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and Trade Show, Jan. 31-Feb. 3, 2007. The exact date is not yet confirmed.
In addition, the NALF Annual Meeting – 9 a.m. to noon, Jan. 8, 2007 – in Denver, Colo., will include a condensed version of the program.
Advanced registrations are not required. Attendees simply will sign in when they arrive.
NALF will post agendas for the workshops in the “Programs” section of its Web site (www.nalf.org) as they become available. For more information, contact Frank Padilla, NALF director of member relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 220-1693.
