INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT NEWS
The Cow-Calf Survey administered by Western Beef Development Center can provide valuble knowledge to further the cow-calf industry. Take the survey now and be part of this very important research!
Areca is sad to announce that our Environmental Farm Plan ( EFP) manager, Fiona Briody, is leaving us. Fiona has developed a new EFP logo, attended many tradeshows and events, tweaked the webbook, and undergone annual training. Fiona says "...Getting to know most of the EFP technicians [was great] as you are the ones who actually make the EFP's happen on the ground. You are the ones who assist the farmers and ranchers through EFP and provide all the great technical support. I hope I have managed to help in a small way to facilitate that process and make it easier...I have throughly enjoyed the last year and thank you all..."
