Desha/Drew Cattlemen’s Association September 2020 Meeting Notes

September 16th, 2020 by

 

CattlemenThe Desha/Drew Cattlemen’s Association and guests enjoyed meeting outside, under the trees at Town & Country Feed and Trailer Store on Hwy 425 South of Monticello, September 10, 2020.  President Jason Meier welcomed those present and Glynn Gibson asked the blessing for the meal.  The group enjoyed a delicious BBQ meal with all the trimmings sponsored by Mr. Bill Stephens with Ag Heritage Farm Credit Service in McGehee, Arkansas.  The association greatly appreciates the support of Ag Heritage.  Mr. Stephens encouraged the members and guests to check with him for low interest rates for equipment, land, and building projects.

President Meier introduced David Goodson with Desha County FSA office in McGehee. He was there to remind us to be looking for a second proposed Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), to assist the producer, which will involve production since April 15th.  Last Spring, CFAP granted payments to farmers and ranchers who were negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Greg Montgomery, UAM Farm Manager, was on hand to report how things are going this year. Normally, UAM hosts a field day in October and invites producers to come to campus to view the farm and learn about their grazing practices and research projects.  Due to Covid-19, that will not happen.  Mr. Montgomery reported that enrollment is up this year and the outlook is positive.  He stated that the UAM Farm will be selling two Registered Beefmaster bulls, one red and one black, at the Arkansas Registered Beefmaster Sale in Damascus.  Also, they will be selling some bred cows and open heifers at the Four States Classic Sale in Hope, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 28th at 1PM.  These females can be viewed online at www.lbjcattle.com.

Next on the agenda, Meier awarded the Desha/Drew Cattlemen’s Scholarship recipients with checks in the amount of $700 each.  Those receiving the awards were:  Kody Boatwright, Trenton Eubanks, Haley Gibson, and Timothy Jones.  The funds for the scholarships were the result of the dessert auction held at our last meeting in June.

Nita Carpenter announced the Desha/Drew Cattlemen’s Association won the ACA membership contest by signing up 110 % of their 2019 members including the highest percentage of renewals.  It was decided we would reward the membership with a steak supper at our next meeting which will be in November.  D/D Cattlemen should be on the lookout for the postcard in November to announce the location of the meeting and phone numbers to RSVP, or look on the Desha/Drew Cattlemen’s Association Facebook page.  Please be certain to RSVP!  It was also decided to postpone elections until sometime next year.
