NCA to host California grass tour
Three days away from the ranch for two would serve anyone well as a “cabin fever reliever.” Nevada Cattlemen’s Association (NCA), in cooperation with Allied Industry Support, is conducting a “Cabin Fever Reliever” California grass road trip March 14-16, 2011.
Fifty seats are available on the bus, so make your reservations early. The bus will leave Elko, NV, from the NCA office on March 14, 7:00 a.m., heading down I-80 west. NCA will pick up passengers as we make our way to Cottonwood, CA, that evening. Western Video Market will host a tri-tip meal and social event the first evening while Merial Animal Health will host the second evening meal and social event. Both events will be complete with potential California buyers of your cattle.
The entire trip will be laced with educational opportunities relative to agriculture resources in northern California with visits to Rogue River Ranch, possibly Rich Rice, Sparrowk and Duane Martin ranches.
Cost of the event is $250 per seat which includes all meals and transportation. Motel costs for two nights are not included in registration. Producers and spouses, Allied Industry representatives, both NCA and potential NCA members from Nevada and surrounding states are all welcome to participate. Several Allied industries pitched in to sponsor the cost of transportation and meals making the proceeds of your $250 donation 100 percent in support of NCA’s mission.
Do not wait; sign up today by contacting the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association office at 775/738-9214 or nca@ nevadabeef.org. — WLJ
