Association Meeting

The 2020 SCKA Membership Meeting and Private Treaty Sale returns to the Silver Creek Equestrian Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi on June 12th and 13th. Kickoff begins on Friday afternoon when Private Treaty Katahdins arrive and displays are set up. Those Private Treaty animals will be ready for viewing Friday afternoon and then again on Saturday. Also on Friday, members will meet at the Beechwood Steak house for a Dutch Treat meal at 5:30. This is a great opportunity to network and eat. Saturday morning will begin at 8 a.m. for coffee and donuts. Meeting will begin at 9 a.m., at which KHSI representatives will be available. Our keynote speaker this year is Dr. Rocky Lemus, speaking on Grazing Systems. He is an Assistant Professor and the Extension Forage Specialist at Mississippi State University in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. He also serves as the Extension Forage Specialist and Leader for the Center of Forage Management and Environmental Stewardship. His areas of expertise include bioenergy crops, carbon sequestration, nutrient management, hay quality and utilization, grazing systems, pasture management and clover utilization. Dr. Lemus has a vast knowledge of the forages that can be grown in the northern, transition, and southern zones of the U.S. with both cool-season and warm-season grasses. Furthermore, the professor has published 29 peer-reviewed publications, 3 book chapters, 54 extension publications, 95 abstracts, 26 research bulletins, and 24 research reports. He comes to us highly recommended. We will have a roundtable discussion and open forum. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss topics related to our industry or a panel of producers will take questions. A noon meal will be provided, followed by the Business Meeting. The Private Treaty Sale will provide an opportunity for both buyer and seller. This is a private treaty sale; all sales are between buyer and seller. The SCKA takes no responsibility for any transaction or guarantees any sheep or sales, and there is no entry fee or commission fee. All animals are required to have Scrapie tags and Health papers. Registered and commercial Katahdin sheep may be displayed. This meeting is open to the public. There is no fee to attend and membership in the SCKA is not required.
