2020 SCKA Events

2020 SCKA Membership Meeting and Private Treaty Sale – June 12-13 2020 at Silver Creek Equestrian Club in Vicksburg, MS

2020 SCKA Membership Meeting and

Private Treaty Sale

South Central Katahdin Association is gearing up already for our upcoming 2020 SCKA Membership Meeting and Private Treaty Sale in Vicksburg, Mississippi. We will be returning to the Silver Creek Equestrian Club. The date is set, so don’t forget to add it to your 2020 calendar – June 12-13, 2020. Our gathering will start on Friday at the arena. As you know, we have a few pens for your livestock (you can bring your own pens too), a resident guard dog, secure parking for your trailers and personal items like display tables, lawn chairs etc. are safe as well. We will enjoy a Dutch treat supper at the Beachwood Steakhouse Restaurant. Sitting by people you’ve never met is a great way to build lasting relationships and another referral source for your lamb. Saturday morning there is always fresh coffee and donuts. This is a relaxed environment to meet and greet each other, to answer questions anyone may have before they purchase your livestock and exchange business cards and brochures. We are beginning to inquire about speakers and I’m excited with a few of the names that are being recommended. We would like to know if there is any subject, you’d be interested in, so you need to contact Clifford Spraberry and give him your suggestions. Usually someone wants a speaker to discuss forage, but remember, if that speaker doesn’t live in our area, they have totally different grasses and it’s not as helpful as you needed. A few topics that have been offered so far are: types and benefits of minerals, recommended vaccinations and their scheduling, etc. We will end the day on Saturday with our Annual Business Meeting. We will need to nominate 2 Board of Director positions. If you are interested in jumping in the ring, please let it be known to Clifford or Mark. Hopefully we will sign up more members this year. We look forward to a prosperous new year and can’t wait to hear all about your farms. Team Work Makes The Dream Work
