Friday, June 24th, 2016

cattlemenThe Desha/Drew Cattlemen’s Association met for the regular monthly meeting June 16, 2016, at the Agriculture Building on the UAM campus.  President Glynn Gibson welcomed the members and guests and thanked Hall Manufacturing, who makes Bush-Wacker equipment, for sponsoring our meal of roast beef sandwiches with all the trimmings.  Greg Montgomery asked the blessing.
