Executive Board Recommends Budgets
July 18, 2014

The executive board of the American Sheep Industry Association held its summer meeting in Hastings, Neb., this week. In a unanimous vote, the board recommended the budgets be forwarded to the board of directors for approval.

Budgets relating to wool programming, quality improvement and market promotion were covered in the Wool Trust Budget. A supplemental budget was also recommended for 2015 to fund sheep research and Let's Grow initiatives in order to support the industry roadmap. A separate budget for legislative and trade association business was also recommended.

While in Hastings, the executive board took the opportunity to visit with the sheep research scientists at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
