The National Conference, Show and Sale is Almost Here!

If you have not made plans and registered for the 2015 National Conference and Show and Sale you need to hurry, you are almost out of time.  The activities take place on September 18 and 19 at Walker Century Farm at Anderson, SC.  On Friday the 18th several speakers will make presentations, including Vic Edwards and Alison Heap who will be evaluating animals from the Walker Century Farm herd.  Vic and Alison are traveling all the way from Australia to be a part of the program and judge the National Show.  The Annual Membership Meeting is Friday night.

National Show and Sale

The National Show, judged by Vic and Alison, will be Saturday morning, the 19th, and the National Sale will be Saturday afternoon.  The catalog for the sale and a listing of the show cattle can be found on the RDUSA website.  If you would like a sale catalog sent to you, contact Sarah Wilkerson.  (229-516-0394, or sarahkwilkerson@gmail.com)
