RRAA General Meeting
The general meeting of the Red River Angus Association was held Tuesday, September 8, 2015. 13 members were present and heard a very informative talk from Mr. Robert Payne with Merial. Mr. Payne spoke about a fairly new cattle dewormer,”Long Range” which sounds like a very beneficial product that you should look into for use in your herd. It is a long acting injectable that holds a lot of promise. Mr. Payne bought everyone’s dinner so don’t miss the next meeting, you never know what you might be missing.
Additional information passed along in the meeting included the date for the next ultrasound to be held at Roger Boyers’. Check the website for directions but make note that the date is Friday October 16th. We have switched to Friday as we have a new ultrasound tech, Mr. Chad Gordon. Chad takes over for Michelle Perry who has retired from the business (thanks for all your help over the years Michelle). As has been the practice, the association will pick up the mileage and you will owe just $15.00 per head for the ultrasound. Come out and support this worthwhile program, give Roger Boyer or Neal Hunt a call to let us know how many head you’ll be bringing. This program is for paid members so if you’re not paid up on your dues bring a check for $25.00 and you will be paid up through the end of 2016.
Don’t forget the Cooke County Beef Improvement Association Fall Replacement Sale to be held in Gainesville on October 24th.
The program for the night closed with a door prize drawing for 5 units of semen donated by Friedrich Breeding Service. The prize was for your choice from the list of bulls in the ABS Special going on right now. The door prize was won by Roger Boyer. Give Vernon Friedrich a call if you need any A I supplies at 940-665-4952.
Hope to see you at the next meeting in January 2016, check back often to find the date as it will change from the regular date we have had in the past.
