Well spring is in the air and that means it’s time to plan our GSSB Spring General Meeting. This year’s Spring General Meeting will take place on 20 Apr 19 @ 11:30 AM. The meeting will be hosted by Bob and Diane May and their family at Swayze Inn Farm in Hope, NJ. We will have our general meeting, a farm tour and a session on participating in a breed up program including the use of CIDRs to cycle ewes, laparoscopic artificial insemination techniques and pregnancy check via ultrasound. As always dress comfortable and wear farm clothes. Meeting will be rain or shine and lunch will be served.
Our general meeting agenda will include an update on our Youth Ambassador program, an update from this year’s ASI meeting as well as a report out on last year’s festival along with the plans for this year which is our 25th annual festival. For members in attendance we will have our ever popular door prize drawings at the end of the meeting.
The May’s Swayze Inn Farm is located in Warren County, NJ and the address can be found in the Member’s Directory. Bob’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and the farm’s website is SwayzeInnFarm.com.
This is an opportunity to meet the new slate of officers and interact with other regional shepherds in addition to learning about some breeding practices and experiences from seasoned breeders and a veterinarian who is a reproduction specialist.
We would like to get a head count for lunch so please let Bob know if you will be attending as well if you may have any food allergies.
Look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
