WB01501_.gif (476 bytes) The last fall workshop was held at Pat Helms' farm in Citra, Florida.  The day was a very big success and was very beneficial to all 28 members in attendance.  The demonstrations in breeding, palpating, cage construction, worm bed construction and barn management were all well planned and organized.  The panel discussions were enjoyed by all.  The feed study/comparison was later published in the newsletter for all members.  The date and location for this years workshop has not yet been decided, but all keep an eye on this site and it will be updated as soon as this date is known.
