South Dakota Stockgrowers invite public to Nov. 30 meeting in Martin

South Dakota Stockgrowers are inviting the public to the winter quarterly meeting on Nov. 30, 2010 in Martin, SD at the Bennett County Public Library Meeting Room.

According to District Director Cole Lange, Oglala, SD, the meeting is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. (MST) with committee meetings. He said “This will be a one-day meeting with committee meetings until approximately 2 p.m., which is the scheduled start time for the Board of Directors Meeting. As always, all of our meetings are open to the public and we invite everyone to stop in and visit with members any time.”

The Stockgrowers meeting is being held in conjunction with the South Dakota Cattlewomen, who will also meet at the Library.

At noon the Cattlewomen will join the Stockgrowers for a catered meal and an interesting presentation by Stockgrower Development Director Silvia Christen.

In October, Silvia led a Stockgrower-KBHB Radio sponsored trip through Chile and Argentina.

Of the trip, she said, “It was a fun and exciting trip; very interesting and basically agricultural. The farms and ranches we visited were not tourist type operations – just regular crop and/or livestock operations.” She continued, “I took lots of photos and am looking forward to sharing them with all who attend the meeting.” Silvia will be making her presentation at 12:30 p.m.

Stockgrowers’ lobbyist Jeremiah M. Murphy will be on hand to update us on the newly elected legislators and what we can look forward to in new legislation.

Lange extended his thanks to several local businesses who are sponsoring the event, including: Ace General Store, Inc.; Bob’s Gas Service; Kratovil’s True Value; LaCreek Electric Association, Inc.; Martin Livestock Auction, Inc.; Sportsman’s Lanes II, Inc.; and Wagoners’ Grocery.
