ICON planning bus trip to Fort Collins
Realizing the importance of this meeting and what a tremendous opportunity this is for cattlemen to speak up, Independent Cattlemen of Nebraska (ICON) is organizing a charter bus to take producers to Fort Collins, CO, for the DOJ/USDA Workshop, Friday, Aug. 27, 2010, to examine the market concentration and lack of competition in today’s cattle industry.
Each chartered bus holds 56 passengers and ICON is asking for advance reservations in order to determine number and routes of buses. Buses will leave the night before the meeting. ICON is currently working on sponsors to pay for the cost of the buses. Producers will be responsible for their overnight stay and meals. The deadline for reserving a seat is August 6.
If interested in traveling with other like-minded producers and having your voice heard please contact Destry Brown, Executive Director of ICON at 308-458-2244 to reserve your seat.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
