Crook County CattleWomen – May 27

Crook County CattleWomen met May 27, 2014, at Sundance Community Room with carry-in lunch and enjoyable time visiting with a group of women that have a common bond to support our agriculture business in our community.

WCW upcoming business will be held June 6 at State of Wyoming Stock Growers meeting. We hope to secure for our Beef education new “I love Beef” tattoos which have been a big hit to use in Ag Day events for youth. June 20, 6 p.m.

CCCW will be added as sponsor of the Farm Bureau county candidate forum running for Crook County Offices held at Camp RAM.

County Cattlewomen will sponsor table at the Crook County Library Foundation BBQ July 19, 2014, at the Hadley Ranch with our beef by-products board and scrapbooks showing our programs in Crook County with other activities covering Ag, mineral and railroads will be covered.

Grass roots provided by the Wyoming Beef Council have changes in coming year 2014-2015. Beef Council will have to approve projects educating public on beef before receiving funds. Wyoming Beef Council wants the most people educated on the value of beef when receiving this money.

Discussion was held on the FFA Crook County CattleWomen signs repainting signs that are up and putting up the sign that Janet Jensen has in the northeast corner of Crook County that needs to be placed on Highway 212.

Barbara Clark will provide the names and pictures of the Mother’s and Father’s Day promotion of a baby whose weight will be given to the parents with a beef roast. A baby born closest to the dates of the holidays will be advertised in Sundance Times, Moorcroft Leader, and Hulett Pioneer.
