Doud to speak at cattle producers meeting

Animal Health Center of Marion County is sponsoring a fall cattle producers’ meeting Nov. 7 at the Lincolnville Community Center.

After a social hour from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Gregg Doud, an aide to Sen. Pat Roberts, will speak about efforts underway to draft the 2012 farm bill. A brisket supper will follow Doud’s presentation.

At least 150 tickets are available. They are free to those who pick them up ahead of time at the Animal Health Center in Marion or the Tri-County Veterinary Center in Herington. Tickets may be purchased that night at the door for $20.

“This is a chance for our local producers to hear about the 2012 farm bill and maybe have a small amount of input into it,” Veterinarian Jessica Laurin said.
