All members are welcome to come together for this annual event. The annual business meeting includes election of officers and directors. Meet with other Highland breeders and learn from educational sessions. Juniors will have great activities. There will be a banquet on Saturday followed by an auction to raise funds for the Juniors.
Registration will be at noon on Saturday the 4th, meeting will be at 1 pm and dinner at 6 pm.
We couldn’t have asked for a better speaker for Sunday Morning either! Josh Krenz, Highland cattle owner (Windland Flats) and business entrepreneur, will present some simple principles and basic metrics to help you start thinking about how to manage the business side of “right sizing your fold” in today’s economics storm.
know when to hold 'em know when to fold 'em
- Love your Highlands, but need some perspective on when to sell and when to keep them? Do cattle prices have you all up in arms? Is a short bet or a long-term approach to managing your cattle herd going to pay off? Do you wonder how other farms approach the business side of managing cull cows, replacement heifers, steers, fold sires and the end game of raising high-quality protein for consumers?
- We will answer these questions and much more during an educational session at the annual meeting in February.
Don't forget, if you can, to bring along an auction item to donate to the juniors. They will be auctioning off the items to raise money for their activities throughout the year. The funds will go toward recreational activities during our annual meeting, educational activities like cow camp, and expenses for their show in Austin, MN in the fall of the year. Please direct any questions about the auction or its items to: Paige Proctor, NCHCAjr Pres., at firstname.lastname@example.org she can help you out with it.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again! We bet there are few breeders there you would like to see again also, or even meet for the first time! So join us in February for a great weekend of learning, talking “cows” and having fun!
